A left-footer, in Irish- Catholic terms, was/is a Protestant, thus one "out in left field." I think that it was that "COLOR ME ORANGE" that made me reply. Field and footing are relative; one shouldn't throw oranges in a green house. Enough of the color commentary. Re baseball, wouldn't the left fielder be more likely to stay out -- as opposed to moving in? Bill King
