Andy Berg Headshot

Former Major League Baseball player, Johnathan “Mac” Williamson, announced Tuesday that he has filed a lawsuit against China Basin Ballpark Company LLC, the owner and operator of Oracle Park in San Francisco.

According to a press release, the case arises from concussion-related injuries Williamson sustained in a game on April 24, 2018, when Williamson, playing left field for the San Francisco Giants, crashed into the bullpen mound while running full speed attempting to catch a foul ball and collided headfirst into the left field line wall.

Since the collision, Williamson says he has struggled with vision problems and other post-concussion symptoms.
