The entrance to the Rogers Centre is closed after reports of chunks of ice falling off the nearby CN Tower, The Star reported Monday.

The Star also reported that the Rogers Centre, home of the Toronto Blue Jays, suffered a hole in the roof over right field and that snow is now on the field.

The Blue Jays canceled Monday's game against the Royals because of damage to the roof, and will have a doubleheader Tuesday, with the first game starting at 3:07 p.m. ET, the team announced.

Two of Toronto's past three games at Cleveland were postponed due to weather and the Jays returned to their home stadium figuring the roof would serve as protection from the brutal spring storm. But, even in their climate-controlled stadium, the Jays couldn't escape nature's elements.

Weather has been an issue across Major League Baseball this season, especially in the past week. In addition to Toronto's matchup against Cleveland, the Angels, Royals, Tigers, Yankees, Cubs, Braves, White Sox and Twins all had games postponed on Sunday alone.
