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

The team had to quickly backtrack on that tweet after the damage to the stadium before eventually announcing that Monday's game would not be played.

This marks the third straight postponement for the Blue Jays, who also had games against the Indians postponed Saturday and Sunday because of inclement weather in Cleveland. It is adjacent to the CN Tower, an 1,815-feet-high structure that is among Canada's most recognizable landmarks.

Police said they had blocked off the area directly under the CN Tower and the baseball stadium due to the "relatively large" blocks of ice tumbling down onto the streets and sidewalks below.

The Jays and Royals will play a double-header Tuesday at Rogers Centre.

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. Much of the area was eventually closed off to pedestrians, with no injuries reported thus far.

The Toronto Blue Jays' Monday game against the Kansas City Royals was cancelled because of damage to the Rogers Centre roof.

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.
