The sun sets near the old high school baseball scoreboard where former pro baseball player Scott Podsednik played in high school, Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014 in, West, Texas. Podsednik, a West native, was part of a Texas Rangers caravan traveling through central Texas. West was devastated by a deadly fertilizer plant explosion last year. The Rangers have donated $50,000 to help renovate a park across from the plant site with a new playground and a memorial to the 15 people killed in the explosion.
