TORONTO – It’s been a cold first few weeks of the baseball season.

The Kansas City Royals had their last two Sunday home games at Kauffman Stadium postponed due to frigid temps. Now, Monday's game is also postponed. 

The Toronto Blue Jays said a freezing rain storm over the weekend collected ice on the CN Tower. That ice then fell down on and around the nearby Rogers Center, causing safety concerns for fans.

Game time was scheduled for 6:07 p.m. central time. The Royals announced Monday afternoon the game was rescheduled as part of a doubleheader Tuesday, saying inclement weather caused damage to the roof of the Rogers Center.
