CN Tower closed, Rogers centre roof leaks due to falling ice

CN Tower closed, Rogers centre roof leaks due to falling ice

The game will be made up Tuesday afternoon as part of a traditional doubleheader, the Blue Jays announced late Monday afternoon.

Police say they blocked off the area directly under the CN Tower and the stadium. The damage forced the Blue Jays to postpone their scheduled game with the Kansas City Royals. The entrance to the CN Tower and Rogers Centre closed.

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

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.

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

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

Imagine reporting to work at Rogers Centre in Toronto and being told that your boss needs you to go on the roof to assess damage ... during an ice storm.

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

Six games were postponed Sunday across Major League Baseball and two more (Orioles-Red Sox, Cardinals-Cubs) were postponed Monday, bringing the season total to 24.
