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.
The Toronto Blue Jays are currently working with CN Tower and Toronto Police Service to assess the conditions around Rogers Centre and the viability of playing tonight’s game against the Kansas City Royals.
We will continue to assess the situation and provide an update shortly.
