TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays postponed Monday night’s game against the Kansas City Royals because of chunks of ice crashing down on and near Rogers Centre from the nearby CN Tower following a weekend of freezing rain.
The makeup game will be played Tuesday afternoon as part of a doubleheader. The first game will begin at 2:07 p.m. CT.
Police say they blocked off the area directly under the CN Tower and the stadium. “Relatively large” blocks of ice have been tumbling onto the streets and sidewalks. Authorities say no injuries have been reported.
A weekend ice storm resulted in power outages, canceled flights and road collisions. More than 120,000 customers across much of Ontario remained without power.
