Toronto Blue Jays Cancel Game Due To Danger From Falling Ice

Toronto Blue Jays Cancel Game Due To Danger From Falling Ice

Crews were unable to access the damage earlier this morning as more ice could fall, the report said. It actually became so unsafe that they had to cancel the Blue Jays game because falling ice had struck and pierced the Rogers Center roof.

Even moving indoors couldn't get the Blue Jays back on the field.

The sixth inning at Rogers Centre on Tuesday afternoon began with an error by Royals third baseman Cheslor Cuthbert and ended after six runs crossed the plate in what became an 11-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays in the opener of a doubleheader.

Chunks of ice crashing down from the CN Tower following a weekend of freezing rain forced the closure of the Toronto landmark and prompted the city's baseball team to consider cancelling Monday night's game against the Kansas City Royals at the nearby Rogers Centre. "It was pretty frightening. It sounded like fireworks or some kind of explosion going off". "It's mostly location", manager Ned Yost said.

Instead, the game will be made up Tuesday as part of a traditional doubleheader beginning at 3:07 p.m. ET. Pitching Probables: The Royals will trot out Ian Kennedy (1-1, 1.00 ERA) and he will be opposed by Aaron Sanchez (1-1, 3.66 ERA).

Toronto (10-5), playing just its second game in five days, has won two straight five of its last six games.

Amazingly, the Blue Jays actually got workers up on top of the dome in freezing rain on Monday afternoon trying to fix the hole in the roof.

The rain, wind, snow and cold that has plagued the Major League Baseball through the first two weeks of the season has worn out its welcome for sure.

The Royals just dropped a 5-3 game to the Angels, while the Blue Jays are coming off of an 8-4 win against the Indians. They were able to squeeze the first of a three-game set in Cleveland before having the next two games postponed.

"We didn't want to put players at risk, we didn't want to put fans or employees at risk", Miller said. "We just thought that more information, more time would help us". We continue to work with @CNTower & @TorontoPolice to assess the situation, & will provide updates about tonight's game shortly.

The Blue Jays are going with righty Joe Biagini as their starter. We'll start at first base with an intriguing story or event, and bring you home with a must-read story in the North Peace sports scene.

"Fortunately there's been no injuries reported", said Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook. A large chunk of ice flew off the lead bus and crashed into the windshield of the second, shattering it.
