The Blue Jays' series opener Monday against the Royals in Toronto could be in jeopardy due to ice falling on Rogers Centre from CN Tower.
The club was working to repair the damage to the stadium's roof, which was caused by falling ice from the tower, which sits next to the stadium. According to a statement from the team's Twitter account, the Blue Jays are "working with the CN Tower and Toronto Police to assess the situation" and will provide updates on the status of Monday's game.

The piece of falling ice opened a big hole in the roof of the Roger Centre.
