Rfv-sense: Sole idiomatic sense: (sports) Of a play which terminates because the object of play, usually a ball, exits the field of play and enters the grandstand. DCDuring TALK 23:26, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Am I missing an idiomatic sense? I can only see in + the + stands, why not in the kitchen or on the roof? Mglovesfun (talk) 17:14, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
I'm interested in whether the term might be used if the ball for example exits a playing field not actually graced with stands. Clearly the definition would need some rewording. If it only means what the definition says, then it is as you say. Let it have its month here. DCDuring TALK 17:45, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
