Ice bombs cancel Jays game

Ice bombs cancel Jays game

Back in 2001, the team had to cancel a home game when the retractable panels failed, which lead to a rip in the roof the stadium.

A few hours after the Blue Jays posted that original tweet, ice fell from CN Tower onto Rogers Centre' roof, according to a Toronto TV station.

In Ottawa, which was under a freezing rain warning, all entrances to the Centre Block on Parliament Hill were closed because of falling ice.

But it was the gaping hole in right field, believed to have been caused by ice falling from the adjacent CN Tower, that was the biggest concern.

The Jays are scheduled to play the Kansas City Royals Monday evening.

Verdict major blow to fight against terror, says Muslims
So far NIA has not been able to find clinching evidence against anyone guilty of orchestrating the Mecca Masjid Dargah blast. The BJP said it had exposed the Congress' appeasement politics and proved that there is "no such thing as saffron terror".

This would be the third game cancellation in a row for the Blue Jays, who had games Saturday and Sunday against the Cleveland Indians cancelled at Progressive Field due to heavy rain.

The Blue Jays tweeted at 2 p.m. that they are assessing the situation and will make an announcement about if the game will be played.

Ice damage has been observed on several buildings in the area.

A hole was still visible in the roof on Monday afternoon. "We knew that (if) there was a game going on at the time, it would have been a risk to players and the fans".

Team officials consulted with engineering staff, CN Tower representatives and the Toronto Police before making the decision to reschedule the game. They're expected to provide an update shortly. More than 120,000 customers remain without power.
