Ice bombs cancel Jays game

The CN Tower Has Closed Due To Extremely Dangerous Conditions featured image

Here were are, 27 years later and another Royals-Blue Jays game in Toronto could be called because of a hole in the roof.

The Toronto Blue Jays attempted to make a joke aimed at other teams' misfortunes, about how their game on Monday would go on as planned thanks to their roof.

"We saw it happen - it was pretty frightening at the time", said Miller, who witnessed large chunks of ice crash to the field below.

Miller said pieces of ice crashed to the turf in right field along with some insulation from the roof.

The Kansas City Royals had their last two Sunday home games at Kauffman Stadium postponed due to frigid temps.

A hole in the Rogers Centre's retractable roof has led to the postponement of the Toronto Blue Jays' Monday night game against the Kansas City Royals.


The Jays and Royals will play a double-header Tuesday at Rogers Centre.

Most of the outfield was cordoned off, and tarpaulins and buckets on both the infield and outfield were being used to catch leaks and drips. We apologize to our fans for this inconvenience. The teams will play a doubleheader on Tuesday.

Workers examine a hole on top of the Rogers Centre as the area around the CN Tower is closed off due to reports of falling ice in Toronto on Monday, April 16, 2018. Authorities said no injuries had been reported, but several windows in nearby office buildings were smashed and at least one vehicle was struck. We continue to work with @CNTower & @TorontoPolice to assess the situation, & will provide updates about tonight's game shortly.

A weekend ice storm resulted in power outages, canceled flights and road collisions across Ontario.

With the freezing rain changing to rain, there could be even more photos to come: the next concern is localized flooding, with some areas of southern Ontario and Quebec expected to see up to 50 millimetres of rain Monday.
