Hole in roof puts Blue Jays game at risk

A hole in the Rogers Centre's retractable roof has led to the postponement of the Toronto Blue Jays' Monday night game against the Kansas City Royals. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Tuesday. Workers toiled to close the roof and the team laid out a tarp to cover the affected areas of the field, but the Jays called off the game about 90 minutes before the scheduled first pitch.

Multiple reporters have posted photos on social media of the hole, which has caused leaking onto Rogers Centre's turf field.

This marks the third straight postponement for the Blue Jays, who also had games against the Indians postponed Saturday and Sunday because of inclement weather in Cleveland.

"If you come to a dome and get banged, something ain't right", Royals manager Ned Yost told reporters (via ESPN).
