Much of California is shutting down, with theme parks, horse-racing tracks and concert halls locking their doors while some people postpone their weddings as the nation's largest state attempts to dodge the new coronavirus. On Thursday, March 12, 2020, Major League Baseball canceled its opening-day ceremonies for at least two weeks, meaning the 56,000 fans planning to watch the Los Angeles Dodgers play the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium on March 26 will have to find something else to do.

Samantha McGowen is suing the Los Angeles Dodgers for damages related to injuries she says she suffered last September in a scooter crash. 

Per TMZ Sports, McGowen said in the lawsuit that she fractured her jaw, ruptured her jaw joint, cracked six teeth and broke her leg when she crashed an electric scooter on a cement uprising in the ground in Dodger Stadium as she was driving to the ride-sharing area of the parking lot. 

McGowen says the incident occurred as she and her boyfriend were leaving a Sept. 20 game between the Dodgers and Colorado Rockies in the seventh inning. 

The lawsuit states McGowen has suffered from "severe emotional distress and constant pain" since the crash. She also said "there wasn't good lighting around the root ... and the hazard yellow lines the team had painted on the uprising were faded."

The Dodgers did not respond to TMZ's request for comment.
