How to use "Out of bounds" in context?

Out of bounds is a term used in sports to describe an area on the playing field that is not part of the regular game. The term is also used in other types of sport, such as bandy, where an out of bounds area may delimit a side's playing area.

The term is derived from horseshoes, in which players were not allowed to jump over the boundaries of the playing field. When the playing field was increased in size, it was no longer possible for players to jump over the boundaries and the term "out of bounds" was used to describe an area outside the playing field.
