CN Tower closed, Rogers Centre assessing damage due to falling ice

CN Tower closed, Rogers Centre assessing damage due to falling ice

The Blue Jays announced earlier Monday that they are working with Toronto police and the CN Tower to evaluate the "viability of playing tonight's game".

Toronto and Kansas City will have a doubleheader tomorrow to make up for Mother Nature imposing her will and forcing the Blue Jays to deal with some bad karma quickly after their Twitter accounts lame troll backfired.

The Blue Jays were scheduled to play a weekend series at Cleveland's Progressive Field, but the Saturday and Sunday games were rescheduled due to rain. The entrance to the CN Tower and the Rogers Centre are closed.

The team tweeted earlier Monday that it was working to fix the hole, which was caused by a piece of ice falling from the neighboring CN Tower.

A Kansas City sportswriter considers it karma that Monday night's game between the Toronto Blue Jays and visiting Royals was postponed after nasty weather damaged the roof at Rogers Centre. Authorities say no injuries have been reported. More than 120,000 customers across much of Ontario remained without power.

Crews attempted to fix the roof in time for first pitch but were unable to and the Blue Jays scrapped the game due to safety reasons. Monday's games between the Orioles-Red Sox and Cardinals-Cubs were also postponed, bringing MLB's season total to 24 so far.
