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

CN Tower closed due to extreme weather

CN Tower closed after reports of chunks of ice falling, Rogers Centre roof leaking

The game had been rescheduled as part of a doubleheader starting Tuesday afternoon.

The only previous postponement in dome history came April 12, 2001, also with the Royals in town, when two roof panels collided, causing a hole and sending pieces of sheet metal and insulation down to the turf. The entrance to the CN Tower and Rogers Centre closed.

The Toronto Blue Jays' home game Monday against the Kansas City Royals is in danger of being postponed because of a hole in the Rogers Centre roof created by falling ice from the nearby CN Tower.

The Jays' account sent out a few tweets over the course of the weekend, taking mild jabs at the situation in Cleveland in the belief that postponements couldn't happen in Toronto, where the weekend weather - a mess of snow and freezing rain - was much worse.

She told parliament the decision to conduct air strikes against Syria was in the British national interest and not as a result of pressure from Trump.

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. The driver was cut, but there were no reports of serious injuries.

The Blue Jays had fun with the storm on Twitter earlier on Monday, coyly announcing that the game would not be affected by the storm.

Basically, the icy conditions in Toronto have caused plenty of issues, canceling schools and leaving thousands without power.

But chunks ice falling from the CN Tower damaged the roof and allowed water to seep into the stadium.
