Here is my best explanation:

'playing areas' is the definition.

'unconscious if sled crashes' is the wordplay.
'unconscious' becomes 'out' ('out' can be similar in meaning to 'unconscious').
'crashes' is an anagram indicator.
'if'+'sled'='ifsled'
'ifsled' anagrammed gives 'fields'.
'out'+'fields'='OUTFIELDS'

'in' is the link.
