Falling ice concerns prompt closures around CN Tower

Torontonians will wake up to a wet and slippery Monday morning after the wicked weekend weather

Torontonians will wake up to a wet and slippery Monday morning after the wicked weekend weather

The evening game between the Blue Jays and Kansas City Royals was postponed about 90 minutes before the scheduled first pitch at 7:07 p.m. ET.

Third baseman Mike Moustakas and first baseman Lucas Duda have led Kansas City's hitters. Devon Travis's RBI single tied the game 3-3 and Steve Pearce drove in Maile for the go-ahead run. Those issues have led to plenty of people wondering why more baseball games don't get played in domes early in the season. 34 earned run average in 44 games including an even worse 5.73 earned run average in his 18 starts in 2017.

When the 52,000-seat Rogers Centre, then called the SkyDome, opened in 1989, it boasted the first retractable stadium roof in North America. "We knew that (if) there was a game going on at the time, it would have been a risk to players and the fans". Toronto starter Marcus Stroman was charged with all four runs on nine hits in five frames before four relievers tossed shutout baseball the rest of the way.

The Blue Jays have won their last four series openers. DH Kendrys Morales (right hamstring) is not expected to require a rehab assignment before rejoining the team. Morales went on the disabled list April 10.

Allegiant says 60 Minutes report 'irresponsible and misleading'
Canadian global affairs analyst and former aviation journalist Michael Bociurkiw said it's "absolutely shocking" that the U.S. We checked on that project with a Charlotte County spokesman who said Allegiant has not yet submitted a site plan for review.

Snow is on the field after falling ice from the CN Tower smashed a hole in the Rogers Centre, home of the Toronto Blue Jays, over right field Monday afternoon. Toronto are 4-1 in their last 5 overall and are 4-1 in their last 5 games on astroturf and are 4-1 in their last 5 home games.

Police blocked access to entrance gates on the east side of the stadium, next to the tower, because "relatively large" blocks of ice were falling onto streets and sidewalks below. The tower itself and several nearby restaurants and attractions were also closed. The offense was an issue for them a year ago and they scored just three total runs in their first two games, but they have averaged 5.75 rpg during their 9-3 streak and that does bode well for them here as the Royals just can't score at the moment.

Kansas City doesn't have much to offer.
