Falling ice damages Rogers Centre roof, Royals-Blue Jays PPD

CN Tower closed after reports of chunks of ice falling, Rogers Centre roof leaking

Photographers in Toronto captured the scene Monday afternoon at the Rogers Centre.

Instead, the game will be made up Tuesday as part of a traditional doubleheader beginning at 3:07 p.m. ET. Yet the universe is a fickle being, and sometimes unexpected events happen.

Rogers Centre, the home of the Toronto Blue Jays, is seen here with the neighboring CN Tower. The ice created a hole, and the hole enabled snow to fall in onto the playing surface.

Police began receiving reports of falling ice around 10:30 a.m., with the CN Tower closing about an hour later. Authorities say no injuries have been reported, but several windows in nearby office buildings were smashed and at least one auto was struck.

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.

A weekend ice storm resulted in power outages, canceled flights and auto crashes. Monday's games between the Orioles-Red Sox and Cardinals-Cubs were also postponed, bringing MLB's season total to 24 so far.

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.
