First of three batches of ads from then-independent station KTVT-TV (Channel 11)'s telecast of the Texas Rangers' Sept. 24, 1993, game against the Chicago White Sox at Comiskey Park - the penultimate game of their season.

Two things you'll notice - Some of the breaks are a bit short because I've taken out repeat ads, and I've left in a few bits of in-game graphics and whatnot for posterity.

Break 1:
- Rangers sponsor tag: Metro Area Oldsmobile Dealers, Southwestern Bell Yellow Pages (SWBYPs), Valvoline
- Mitsubishi Eclipse
- Whataburger Whatameals
- Miller Lite (From the "let's watch both" series - Cowboy Art Gallery!)

Break 2:
- NationsBank (Spotlighting Sarasota, Fla.)
- McDonald's Play of the Week (Ooh, classy - the official restaurant sponsor of the Cowboys! This week: a Homestyle Burger for 99 cents.)
- Mercury Grand Marquis

Break 3:
- Southwest Airlines salutes Nolan Ryan (A montage in honor of his final season with the Rangers - as a player, anyway. And yes, it includes the Ventura incident.)
- Valvoline
- Gatorade
- The Men's Wearhouse

Break 4:
- Ballpark in Arlington opening season (with Bobby Bragan)
- Chevy trucks (How NOT to treat your pickup)

- A little bit of chatter from commentators Jim Sundberg and Steve Busby
- In-game ad: HUD homes

Break 5:
- Rangers sponsor tag: Dr Pepper, Bank of America
- Bank of America
- Dr Pepper (The wackiest boot camp/quasi-boot-camp ever.)
- Luxor

- "Next TV Game" card with some accompanying chatter
