  • Blue Jays stadium

Monday night's Major League Baseball game between the Toronto Blue Jays and Kansas City Royals has been postponed because of damage to the roof at Rogers Centre.

The two teams will play a traditional doubleheader Tuesday with the first game starting at 3:07 pm.

Police had blocked off the area directly under the CN Tower and the east side of the Rogers Centre because of the "relatively large" blocks of ice tumbling down onto the streets and sidewalks below.

"Fortunately there's been no injuries reported", said Toronto Police Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook.

Teacher salaries are also about $7,000 below the national average, according to the Colorado School Finance Project. He thanked the students for caring about educators and he wanted students to be clear on the issue.


And as if having to cancel a home game due to weather when you play in a dome, the Blue Jays really put their feet in their mouth when they tweeted a smug status poking fun at all the postponed games on Monday.

However, if ice is already busting holes in the roof of the Rogers Centre, what are they going to do when Vlad Guerrero Jr. gets called up?

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. More than 120,000 customers remain without power. Monday's games between the Orioles-Red Sox and Cardinals-Cubs were also postponed, bringing MLB's season total to 24 so far.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
