Blue Jays brag about having a roof, which immediately fails them

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

Police blocked access to entrance gates on the east side of the stadium, next to the tower, because "relatively large" blocks of ice were falling onto streets and sidewalks below.

The unnecessarily smug tweet was a dig at all the other teams who have had to postpone their games Monday as well as this past week.

The only previous postponement in dome history came April 12, 2001, also with the Royals in town, when two roof panels collided, causing a hole and sending pieces of sheet metal and insulation down to the turf.

The Toronto Blue Jays Roger Centre is now trying to deal with snow coming into the stadium as a piece of ice from the nearby CN Tower fell onto the roof.

The Toronto Blue Jays said a freezing rain storm over the weekend collected ice on the CN Tower.

The Star's Richard Griffin also reports that a hole has opened in the roof of the Rogers Centre over right field, and that snow is on the field.

Earlier Monday, the Blue Jays said they were working with the CN Tower and Toronto police to assess whether a game could be played safely.

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

But chunks ice falling from the CN Tower damaged the roof and allowed water to seep into the stadium.
