A return to Toronto means no games are going to be postponed due to weather, right? Right?!?! You’d think, given the fact the Jays play indoors when it’s shitty outside, that baseball in Toronto is bulletproof from Mother Nature. But that might not be the case.
Rogers Centre confirms ice from the CN Tower hit the roof of the building and crews are unable to assess the damage as more ice could fall.— CP24 (@CP24) April 16, 2018
The CN Tower has been closed due to “extreme weather” and large chunks of ice have fallen off of the tower and on to the roof of the Rogers Centre. Police are reportedly working to determine the extent of the damage to the roof but, as of right now, the entrances to both the CN Tower and Rogers Centre are closed.
The Blue Jays are scheduled to play the Kansas City Royals at 7:07 pm ET, but you have to wonder at this point if the game might be cancelled. If so, that would be the first time in SkyDome/Rogers Centre history that the futuristic weather-proof stadium has been closed due to, uh, weather.
This is kinda terrifying.
All afternoon the wind has been blowing heavy snow and ice off the roof of the @RogersCentre and it comes crashing down loudly. No warning signs and we’ve been nervous every time someone walks underneath. (Listen with sound on.) #onstorm pic.twitter.com/yp1YYfV43O— Josh McConnell (@joshmcconnell) April 15, 2018
Another guy on Twitter said he was inside Rogers Centre when ice slammed on the roof resulting in a cloud bang.
Welcome to hell, folks. The Endless Winter has dug its claws into our world and it doesn’t want to let go!
I’ll update this as more information comes in.
