Rangers, fans helping West, Texas

The Rangers and their fans have offered an overwhelming amount of support in the direction of West, Texas, where last week's fertilizer plant explosion has left 14 dead and more than 200 injured.

Officials from West have requested that Rangers fans who attend Sunday's game against Seattle and wish to make a donation to do so in the form of gift cards or cash donations.

The Rangers said the items will be collected at Rangers Ballpark gates beginning at noon on Sunday and continue until 30 minutes after the 2:05 p.m. first pitch.

Also, the Rangers and Carter BloodCare will host a blood drive for fans coming to Sunday's game. The blood drive will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame.
