20 April, 2018, 01:52
The Toronto Blue Jays heard those complaints, and made a decision to capitalize on them by sending out a snarky tweet bragging about Monday's game being "played as expected" since the roof at Rogers Centre would protect the field from the weather.
Of course, the Blue Jays were roasted on Twitter shortly after the news broke that their roof was leaking snow and water onto their turf field.
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. The Blue Jays (10-5) played for the first time since Friday after having three straight games postponed for the first time in franchise history. It led to a scary moment on the Royals team bus, and it has been particularly troublesome for Rogers Centre.
The weather has wreaked havoc on the Major League Baseball season with an absurd number of games postponed including six games on Sunday alone.
The natural doubleheader begins at 3:07 p.m. ET, with the second game beginning approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first, according to the team.

Photographers in Toronto captured the scene Monday afternoon at the Rogers Centre. Devon Travis's RBI single tied the game 3-3 and Steve Pearce drove in Maile for the go-ahead run.

The falling ice was a result of the weekend ice storm, which blanketed parts of southern Ontario with freezing rain and ice pellets.
