Blue Jays-Royals game postponed after falling ice damages stadium roof

Blue Jays-Royals game postponed after falling ice damages stadium roof

" The Toronto Blue Jays are now working with CN Tower and Toronto Police Service to assess the conditions around Rogers Centre and the viability of playing tonight's game against the Kansas City Royals", The Toronto Blue Jays said in a tweet issued Monday around 1 p.m.

The two teams will play a traditional doubleheader Tuesday with the first game starting at 3:07 pm.

Multiple reporters have posted photos on social media of the hole, which has caused leaking onto Rogers Centre's turf field.

Police began receiving reports of falling ice around 10:30 a.m., with the CN Tower closing about an hour later. Authorities say no injuries have been reported.

The Jays, with CN Tower and Toronto Police, said they were assessing conditions around the stadium, presumably trying to determine whether ice from the tower could conceivably endanger fans making their way into Rogers Centre or had caused structural damage to the dome that will make the surface unplayable.

A weekend ice storm resulted in power outages, canceled flights and vehicle crashes.

Mother Nature aside, this is actually the 2nd time Toronto has had to postpone a game at the Rogers Centre due to weather, which coincidently, was also against Kansas City. Monday's games between the Orioles-Red Sox and Cardinals-Cubs were also postponed, bringing MLB's season total to 24 so far.
