Royals-Blue Jays series could be impacted after falling ice damages Rogers Centre dome

It actually became so risky that they had to cancel the Blue Jays game because falling ice had struck and pierced the Rogers Center roof.

Interestingly, this isn't the first time the Blue Jays and Royals have had to cancel a game due to issues with Rogers Centre.

The Blue Jays trolled teams on Twitter about having to postpone games due to weather.

Luke Maile drove in the winning run as the Blue Jays edged the Royals 5-4 in 10 innings at the Rogers Centre.

Game 2 will also feature a pair of lefties, with Kansas City's Danny Duffy going against Toronto's J.A. Happ.

The definition is however lower than the other two devices, and the fingerprint reader for this model is located on the back. There's a 3,200mAh battery - as opposed to the G6's 3,000mAh one - and a faster 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor.

This weekend featured a whopping number of Major League Baseball games postponed due to inclement weather, particularly in the Midwest.

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.

The Blue Jays won the opener 11-3 and have now swept all three doubleheaders at their retractable-roof stadium, which opened in 1989.

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.

"We saw it happen, it was pretty frightening at the time", said Miller, the team's executive vice-president of business operations.

Saudi Arabia wants oil at $100
Brent for June settlement climbed $1.90 to end the session at $73.48 on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. US crude rose 0.73 percent to $68.97.

Fans who purchased tickets to Monday's game directly from the Blue Jays will be allowed to exchange their tickets and pick one from a series of nine games - all on Mondays or Tuesdays.

Police said they had blocked off the area directly under the CN Tower and the baseball stadium due to the "relatively large" blocks of ice tumbling down onto the streets and sidewalks below. Authorities said no injuries had been reported, but several windows in nearby office buildings were smashed and at least one vehicle was struck.

The weekend ice storm resulted in power outages, canceled flights and road collisions across Ontario.

By late Monday afternoon, provincial power utility Hydro One said crews had restored power to more than 300,000 customers across much of the province.
