TeamsEdit

The league includes the following teams: Derby Twins, Dodge City A's, El Dorado Broncos, Great Bend Bat Cats, Hays Larks, Haysville Aviators, Liberal Bee Jays, and the Oklahoma City Indians (formerly Oklahoma A's), which play out of Oklahoma City. [1][2]

The Dodge City A's returned to the league once again in 2011 after leaving in 1981.[3]

The Twins joined the league in 2005. The team previously played in the Walter Johnson League.

The Broncos officially moved from Wichita to El Dorado for the 1996 season. The Broncos had previously been located in Hutchinson before moving to Wichita.

Briefly, the Elk City Elkes, Enid (Red) Sox, Joplin Blasters and Nevada (Mo.) Griffins were members of the Jayhawk League, but they switched leagues.

In Kansas and Oklahoma, the Jayhawk is one of 4 collegiate leagues until 2017, the Sooner State League (2010s), the Tulsa (Oklahoma) League, and the Walter Johnson League (these 3 are disbanded) with a total of 30 teams.
