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

CN Tower closed after reports of chunks of ice falling, Rogers Centre roof leaking Falling ice forces closure of CN Tower, Toronto Blue Jays game in jeopardy

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Tuesday.

Police blocked access to entrance gates on the east side of the stadium, next to the tower, because "relatively large" blocks of ice were falling onto streets and sidewalks below.

If the hole in the roof forces a postponement, it would be the third straight for the Blue Jays, who also had games against the Indians postponed Saturday and Sunday because of inclement weather in Cleveland.

The Blue Jays were forced to postpone Monday's game against the Kansas City Royals after a chunk of ice fell from the CN Tower and damaged the Rogers Centre's retractable roof, causing water to leak onto the field. It led to a scary moment on the Royals team bus, and it has been particularly troublesome for Rogers Centre.

There have been no injuries reported yet.

Sean Hannity says he never retained Trump lawyer Michael Cohen
But Judge Kimba Wood rejected his efforts to mask the identity of Hannity, a client Cohen had said wanted to avoid publicity. With Cohen by their side on Monday, lawyers initially resisted revealing the name of the third client for privacy reasons.

Toronto's game against the Royals is clearly in question as the Blue Jays investigate whether they can actually play today.

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

The Blue Jays tweeted that they are investigating whether to postpone Monday's game.

Tarps were spread out along the artificial turf in right field and a hole could be seen in the roof at the downtown stadium.
