Blue Jays game moved to Tuesday after ice falls on Rogers Centre

Damaged Rogers Centre roof leads to rare missed home game for Blue Jays

The Blue Jays had hoped a return to their domed stadium would provide a respite from the relentless storms that led to a pair of postponements in Cleveland over the weekend.

The CN Tower has been closed due to the extreme weather following reports of chunks of ice falling off the tower, endangering buildings and passengers below. It is adjacent to the CN Tower, an 1,815-feet-high structure that is among Canada's most recognizable landmarks.

On Monday morning, it didn't seem like the night's game between the Kansas City Royals and Toronto Blue Jays was in danger of being postponed.

If the team thought they'd get a break by starting a series at the indoor Rogers Center in Toronto, those dreams were dashed Monday.

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

"Fortunately there's been no injuries reported", said Toronto Police Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook.

A three-day ice storm has caused havoc in Toronto, forcing school closures, leaving thousands without power and creating traffic gridlock.

The Blue Jays have tarps set in right field to trap the incoming snow and ice, but the police will have to deem the area safe if ice large enough to break the Rogers Centre's roof is falling from the CN Tower.
