Royals game in Toronto postponed due to falling ice chunks, roof damage

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

This would be the third game cancellation in a row for the Blue Jays, who had games Saturday and Sunday against the Cleveland Indians cancelled at Progressive Field due to heavy rain. But, even in their climate-controlled stadium, the Jays couldn't escape nature's elements and will assess their options for Monday night's game against the Kansas City Royals.

The Blue Jays' home game Monday against the Royals has been postponed because of weather-related damage to Toronto's Rogers Centre roof, including a large hole created by falling ice from the nearby CN Tower.

Instead, the game will be made up Tuesday as part of a traditional doubleheader beginning at 3:07 p.m. ET. Workers toiled to close the roof and the team laid out a tarp to cover the affected areas of the field, but the Jays called off the game about 90 minutes before the scheduled first pitch. Authorities say no injuries have been reported.
