Blue Jays postpone game because ice broke the Skydome

Toronto Police closed areas around the CN Tower again Tuesday because of ongoing concerns with falling ice. The last few days have been particularly bad, with the Cubs, Tigers, Indians, and Twins all forced to postpone multiple games in a row.

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

Of course, the Blue Jays were roasted on Twitter shortly after the news broke that their roof was leaking snow and water onto their turf field.

Only once before has a game at Rogers Centre, with its retractable roof, been postponed.

Former Blue Jay Ryan Goins played his first game against his old team and was greeted with loud cheers.

Workers went on the roof and patched the hole around 4 p.m., and the Blue Jays said they still hoped to play.

We are now working to fix damage to the Rogers Centre roof caused by falling ice from @CNTower.

"We've got the utmost confidence in the guy coming out of the 'pen, and nine times out of 10 Grimm's going to get that done", the left-hander said.

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

"Perhaps this potential postponement is karma, because the Blue Jays have done a lot of bragging about having a roof, particularly after having games postponed in Cleveland", Grathoff wrote a couple of hours before the team confirmed that Monday's game was a no-go.

The Toronto Blue Jays have called up starter Joe Biagini to start Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals. While this is the first time that ice has actually penetrated the steel deck supporting the roof, the important thing is that the damage did not lead to "a progressive collapse", he said.

The falling ice was a result of the weekend ice storm, which blanketed parts of southern Ontario with freezing rain and ice pellets.

By Monday afternoon, more than 120,000 customers across much of the province remained without power as the weather system transitioned to drenching rain in most areas.
