Major League Baseball’s regular season starts this week in LA, with the Dodgers taking on the San Francisco Giants. No fans are allowed in Dodger Stadium, which is now a COVID-19 testing site. Still, bar and restaurant owners across LA can’t wait for baseball to restart. Also in 2022, a new pro women’s soccer team will debut in LA.
