Monday's Royals game in doubt due to Toronto ice

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

The team's will play a traditional doubleheader Tuesday starting at 2:07 p.m.

The Blue Jays had hoped a return to their domed stadium would provide a respite from the relentless storms that led to a pair of postponements in Cleveland over the weekend.

The closure around the CN Tower has been expanded and includes the sidewalk on the south side of Front Street, which is closed from John Street to Blue Jays Way.

It's one thing to have the Royals' home game against the Angels postponed because of the cold, but you'd think that their game played in a dome would go off without a hitch, right?

On Monday, baseball fell victim to the storm when ice fell from the city's iconic CN Tower and tore a hole in the roof of the Rogers Centre, allowing snow to dump onto the field.

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. Much of the area was eventually closed off to pedestrians, with no injuries reported thus far.

Basically, the icy conditions in Toronto have caused plenty of issues, canceling schools and leaving thousands without power.

The stadium, which is located near the base of the 1,815-foot CN Tower, was damaged by falling ice.
