The Blue Jays-Royals Game Was Postponed Because Of A Hole In Rogers Centre Roof

This weekend featured a whopping number of MLB games postponed due to inclement weather, particularly in the Midwest. Rain washed out nearly half the schedule on Sunday.

Tonight, there was a weather-related postponement, but not one you see very often. The Toronto Blue Jays-Kansas City Royals game was called off because of a hole in the Rogers Centre roof in Toronto.

The hole in the roof was caused by falling ice from the nearby CN Tower. Originally, the Blue Jays intended on playing the game as scheduled.

However, the team made the announcement a short time ago that the game was postponed and pushed back until tomorrow. There will be a doubleheader on Tuesday.

Tonight's Blue Jays-Royals game is one of three that was postponed. Cardinals-Cubs and Red Sox-Orioles also got banged.

The rain, wind, snow and cold that has plagued the MLB through the first two weeks of the season has worn out its welcome for sure. We need summer.

As the calendar turns to May in a couple of weeks, hopefully the weather will improve and there will be less scheduling issues.
