Mariners Losing Roof

SEATTLE, Washington -- The Seattle Mariners canceled a second straight baseball game and moved a four-game weekend series to Boston after four ceiling tiles came crashing down from the team's domed stadium.


A 12-pound acoustic ceiling tile fell 180 feet and crashed into the lower-level box seats of the Kingdome on Tuesday 25 minutes before the gates were to open for a game against the Baltimore Orioles. About an hour later, three more tiles came raining down into the seats.


Officials were unable to determine the cause of the ceiling problems and postponed Wednesday's afternoon game against the Orioles.
