Foul! Dodgers-Angels spring training game ended by stinky sewage leak

Foul! Dodgers-Angels spring training game ended by stinky sewage leak

There was reportedly a "pipe backup on two different levels" at the 57-year-old Dodger Stadium, according to Dodgers President Stan Kasten.

Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling had the ideal way to sum up the ordeal. The clubhouse did not appear affected, but several Dodgers said the liquid spilled into the coaches' room and the video room.

The sewage pipe reportedly burst in the bottom of the fifth inning when the Dodgers were 4-3 up. "It was nasty. I'm not going to tell you what it really was, that's kind of messed up". "I smelled it. It was nasty, man".

The Los Angeles Dodgers have pledged to donate $2 million to Puerto Rico's recovery, more than six months after Hurricane Maria devastated the island. Umpire crew chief Gerry Davis announced the delay as officials tried to determine if it was a stadium or city issue.

Refunds are now being arranged for disappointed fans.

Outfielder Ronald Acuna is now for the crown jewel of the Atlanta Braves' loaded farm system after Matt Kemp was traded to the Dodgers in December. "It's unfortunate. We're all winding down spring training". "Kike and Mariana have been such strong advocates for Puerto Rico and we want to join their families and loved ones in helping fix the community and work towards a return to normalcy". Manager Dave Roberts wasn't leaking any information on that, however.

Kasten added that he didn't think the leak would affect the Dodgers' Opening Day game on Thursday against the Giants and that the team still was figuring out whether to offer refunds to those in attendance.
