Royals postponed in Toronto because of hole in roof

Ice falling from CN Tower threatens Royals at Jays report says

But this goes to show that even a roof isn't always proof against the weather (as the Jays' fellow Toronto sports team could tell them; the Raptors' playoff game Saturday was delayed thanks to a leaking roof at the nearby Air Canada Centre).

"Perhaps this potential postponement is karma, because the Blue Jays have done a lot of bragging about having a roof, particularly after having games postponed in Cleveland", Grathoff wrote a couple of hours before the team confirmed that Monday's game was a no-go.

Monday's game between the Royals and Blue Jays has been postponed due to safety concerns after the roof at Rogers Centre was damaged from ice that fell off CN Tower.

Incidentally, the Royals were the opposition the last time a game was postponed at Rogers Centre, back on April, 2001.

A hole was still visible in the roof on Monday afternoon.

Miller said pieces of ice crashed to the turf in right field along with some insulation from the roof.

Toronto police said late Monday that closures around the CN tower would remain in effect until Tuesday morning "after engineers have assessed and deemed the area safe of any hazards".

"It's hard to describe, it was really loud", Miller said.

Fans who purchased tickets to Monday's game directly from the Blue Jays will be allowed to exchange their tickets and pick one from a series of nine games - all on Mondays or Tuesdays.

Barricades have been set up on the south side of the tower. They're expected to provide an update shortly.

Toronto, along with much of southern and central Ontario, is recovering from an ice storm that resulted in power outages, cancelled flights and road collisions over the weekend.
