On a single to left field the third baseman will be the cutoff to home. The shortstop will cover third base. The pitcher will backup home. The catcher will make the call if a cut is needed and to what base. The center fielder should start toward left and once the ball has been fielded cleanly, he should go to back up second in case a throw is made there either from the cutoff or the catcher.

Who is the cut off in baseball if the left-fielder is throwing it home?

Depends on the number of runners on base. Generally, if the left fielder is throwing home, the 3rd baseman is the cut off man, with the SS moving to cover 3rd. The 1b man will stay with the hitter (if the hit was a base hit).

What does the idiom 'out in left field' mean?

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.
