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

17 April 2018

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.

Yes, the Rogers Centre roof had ice fall on it from the CN Tower, which, as any Google image search reveals, is located right there at the stadium.

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

Well, that tweet didn't age well, and it was actually deleted shortly after their roof was pierced by ice from the CN Tower.

The Blue Jays said they were working with the CN Tower and police to evaluate conditions around the stadium and expected to provide an update later in the day.

Police began receiving reports of falling ice around 10:30 a.m., with the CN Tower closing about an hour later.

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.

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.

It was the first time a game has been postponed at the domed stadium since a Jays-Royals contest was deferred April 12, 2001.
