The Texas Rangers will make the most appearances of any major league team on Oklahoma City television this season. Cox Communications viewers can catch 131 Rangers' telecasts, including 110 on FSN and 21 on Cox's supplemental baseball package, primarily on channel 7 with a few games on channel 2. FSN's package also will include 65 games in HD, available on Cox 722.

Josh Lewin, former Rangers general manager Tom Grieve and roving reporter Jim Knox return as the broadcast team.

Here's a look at other teams and packages available this season:

St. Louis Cardinals: Cox will carry 120 games on its supplemental package. Dan McLaughlin and former reliever Al Hrabosky will be the main announcers. Rick Horton, another former Cardinals pitcher, will handle 10 games.

Houston Astros: FSN will carry 66 Astros games in Oklahoma City, and another 28 will be available on the Cox package. Bill Brown and former Astros pitcher Jim Deshaies are the least exciting of the area's broadcast teams.

Chicago Cubs: This might be a banner year for the Cubs, who will have 66 games on WGN. Len Kaspar and Bob Brenly are back in the booth.

Chicago White Sox: WGN will air 31 games with Hawk Harrelson and Darrin Jackson, two of the biggest homers among MLB announcers.
