Update: Monday's game has reportedly been postponed, with a doubleheader likely to take place on Tuesday:
On Monday morning, it didn't seem like the night's game between the Kansas City Royals and Toronto Blue Jays was in danger of being postponed. 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.
The Blue Jays social media team had every reason to think the game would get played when they posted a tweet proclaiming as much. Yet the universe is a fickle being, and sometimes unexpected events happen. Case in point:

It's not yet clear if the game will go on as planned, though crews are trying their best to ensure that it will occur:
