The Jayhawk League will grow by two next summer. The Jayhawk Summer Baseball League has added the Haysville Aviators and the Bethany, Okla., Bulls to the league. The move means the league which originated in 1976 will go to divisions for the first time since 1995. The Liberal Bee Jays will be in the north division with the Dodge City A’s, Hays Larks, and El Dorado Broncos.

The Aviators and Bulls will play in the south with the Derby Twins and Wellington Heat. The Aviators finished fifth in this year’s NBC World Series and originated in 2012. The town is familiar with the Jayhawk League after the Haysville Heat toured the league in 2010, 2011, and 2012 before moving to nearby Wellington. The Bethany Bulls had been the Oklahoma City Bulls. The Bulls also have an American Legion team.

The teams will play 40 league games. The Bee Jays, for instance, will play eight home-and-home games with El Dorado, Hays, and Dodge City making 24 games. They will play Bethany, Derby, Wellington, and Haysville four times a piece and only at one location. So Liberal will only travel to two south locations next season while the other two south teams would come to Liberal. The schedule has not been finalized.
