Blue Jays-Royals cancelled by roof damage from falling ice

Share

The team's will play a traditional doubleheader Tuesday starting at 2:07 p.m.

The CN Tower and some surrounding areas have been closed until further notice due to falling ice.

The Blue Jays tweeted that they are investigating whether to postpone Monday's game. The damage forced the Blue Jays to postpone their scheduled game with the Kansas City Royals. The entrance to the CN Tower and the Rogers Centre are closed. It led to a scary moment on the Royals team bus, and it has been particularly troublesome for Rogers Centre.

A Kansas City sportswriter considers it karma that Monday night's game between the Toronto Blue Jays and visiting Royals was postponed after nasty weather damaged the roof at Rogers Centre. The driver was cut, but there were no reports of serious injuries.

The Blue Jays said they were working with the CN Tower and police to evaluate conditions around the stadium and expected to provide an update later in the day.

Toronto has been in the grip of an ice storm since the start of the weekend, causing power outages and scrambling travel plans, including for thousands of commuters Monday.

Three tarp mats were set up beneath one hole in right field while five other covers of varying sizes were placed along the edge of the infield where the shortstop typically plays and into short left.
