Royals-Blue Jays postponed because of hole in Rogers Centre roof

Royals-Blue Jays postponed because of hole in Rogers Centre roof

The Blue Jays announced earlier Monday that they are working with Toronto police and the CN Tower to evaluate the "viability of playing tonight's game".

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.

The CN Tower was closed several hours before the game was postponed, as what the Toronto Star described as "watermelon-sized chunks of ice" fell just outside the nearby Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Police said they had blocked off the area directly under the CN Tower and the baseball stadium due to the "relatively large" blocks of ice tumbling down onto the streets and sidewalks below. Much of the area was eventually closed off to pedestrians, with no injuries reported thus far.

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. The teams will play a doubleheader on Tuesday.

The Jays moved into the domed stadium, then called SkyDome, in June 1989.

David Wells got both wins in relief, pitching 4 2/3 innings combined.
