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

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

Police say they blocked off the area directly under the CN Tower and the stadium.

Earlier on Monday, the Blue Jays smugly tweeted: "Weather update: Due to our stadium having a roof, today's game will be".

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

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.

According to Christman, the school started out in 1997 as a small Soulard community preschool known as The Little School and Gym. He now teaches deaf children at Mother Tereza Nursery and Primary school , an inclusive school in Gulu Town.

The Blue Jays social media team had every reason to think the game would get played when they posted a tweet proclaiming as much. The driver was cut, but there were no reports of serious injuries.

A Kansas City sportswriter considers it karma that Monday night's game between the Toronto Blue Jays and visiting Royals was postponed after nasty weather damaged the roof at Rogers Centre.

Toronto has been in the grip of an ice storm since the start of the weekend, causing power outages and scrambling travel plans, including for thousands of commuters Monday.

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.
