Hole in roof puts Blue Jays game at risk

Blue Jays stadium

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. But, even in their climate-controlled stadium, the Jays couldn't escape nature's elements and will assess their options for Monday night's game against the Kansas City Royals.

Updates with game postponedThe Toronto Blue Jays have postponed their series opener against Kansas City because of chunks of ice crashing down from the nearby CN Tower following a weekend of freezing rain.

Police say they blocked off the area directly under the CN Tower and the stadium.

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Tuesday.

City could yet finish the season with the most points, goals and wins from a single Premier League campaign. You don't win titles with inconsistency. "I expect you to be consistent in a certain level".

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

WATCH: Torontonians have been warned to avoid the area around the CN Tower as ice has been seen falling from the structure.

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.

Monday's delayed game marks the third straight Blue Jays game affected by weather. Monday's games between the Orioles-Red Sox and Cardinals-Cubs were also postponed, bringing MLB's season total to 24 so far.
