A hole in the roof of the Rogers Centre caused the postponement of a Blue Jays-Royals game.

The Blue Jays were scheduled to play a weekend series at Cleveland's Progressive Field, but the Saturday and Sunday games were rescheduled due to rain. But, even in their climate-controlled stadium, the Jays couldn't escape nature's elements and will assess their options for Monday night's game against the Kansas City Royals.

In September past year , the government backtracked after the insurers said the new formula would overcompensate crash victims. Insurers are also expected to pay less for payouts when the "Ogden rate" comes under review in April 2019, the newspaper says.

The Blue Jays' home game Monday against the Royals has been postponed because of weather-related damage to Toronto's Rogers Centre roof, including a large hole created by falling ice from the nearby CN Tower. Around 5:30 p.m. the decision was made to postpone the game.

Crews attempted to fix the roof in time for first pitch but were unable to and the Blue Jays scrapped the game due to safety reasons. After all, Rogers Centre has a retractable dome that comes in handy on days like Monday - when it's cold and raining and feels nothing like mid-April.

"Fortunately there's been no injuries reported", said Toronto Police Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook. Monday's games between the Orioles-Red Sox and Cardinals-Cubs were also postponed, bringing MLB's season total to 24 so far.
