It should be "left" alone.

Seriously though, we need some pictures to help determine the cause and provide a solution.

Seriously, this is like posting that your stomach hurts on a medical forum and expecting a realistic answer as to why. Garages lean for many reasons, the solution to any problem begins with a thorough, careful, well documented analysis of the existing condition, an evaluation of possible reasons, and a reasoned conclusion. You need a lot of photos, and probably some careful measurements, before you ask how to fix a problem that is as yet undefined.

Tell the Football team to quit using that wall as a tackling dummy. Or just start leaning to the other direction, so that it appears to be straight.
