Shown here is the 1969 yearbook published by the Shawnee County Amateur Baseball Association, Inc. (SCABA), a youth baseball organization with facilities at Lake Shawnee in Topeka, Kansas. The yearbook includes photos of teams who participated in each of the SCABA age divisions offered in 1969--Minor League, Midget, Gopher, Pony, and Pony Express. Also identified are the championship teams in each league, as well as the team sponsors. Among the players pictured in the yearbook is Lon Kruger, the Silver Lake native who would become well-known for his basketball career, first as a player at Kansas State University, and later as a collegiate and NBA coach. In the summer of 1969, Kruger played for the Bluejays, the co-champions in SCABA's Pony Express League, and winner of the league tournament. Digital reproduction of the yearbook was accomplished through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.
