A home plate on a baseball field
The baseball field in a square turned 90o to look like a diamond. The demensions are 90 feet from base to base, including home plate. The pitching plate is 60 feet, 6 inches from the front of home plate. The distances from home plate to 2nd base and from 3rd base to 1st base is 127 feet, 3 and 3/8 inches.
The baseball term diamond is in reference to the object you would see if you drew a line from home plate to first base, first base to second base, second base to third base, and third base to home plate. Each of these lines would be the same length (90 feet), therefore, the object would look like a square if you were sitting down the left field or right field lines. But if you were sitting in center field or behind home plate, the object would look like a diamond. A diamond is really a square turned on it's side.

It is a pentagon, but not a regular pentagon- it is shaped like home plate for baseball or softfball.

Out of left field, from left field, that came from left field are idioms based on a baseball analogy. It refers to an unexpected turn of events or a response to an unexpected action from someone. An example would be if during a conversation over what you would like to eat at a restaurant the other person asks about currency devaluation in China. Your response could be,Well that came out of left field. It was off topic and unexpected. Most of the action in baseball starts at home plate, not left field. You can use right field as well.
