Liberal did not get to play a game Friday when a heavy rain storm hit Liberal about an hour before first pitch against Hays, but that didnt stop the Bee Jays from picking up three wins.alt

The Oklahoma City Indians, an expansion team in the Jayhawk League this season, notified officials that they cannot complete their season, forfeiting their final six games, three to Great Bend and three to the Bee Jays.

The Indians had a rough season, turning in a 4-32 record prior to forfeiting the remaining six games, and it is highly likely the team will not return next season.

Liberal currently trails Hays by one game, and if Liberal can complete the three-game series either ahead or tied with the Larks, the Bee Jays would be the Jayhawk League champions no matter what happens between Hays and El Dorado.

Liberal and Hays scheduled a double header Saturday to make up for Friday’s missed game, and Sunday night at 7 p.m., the two teams face off for the final time.

If Liberal sweeps all three games, they will be the outright Jayhawk League champions and will automatically advance to Championship Week at the NBC World Series in Wichita which begins July 29.

If the Bee Jays take two out of three from the Larks, they would be tied with Hays unless Hays loses one of its three remaining games with El Dorado, which would again make the Bee Jays the outright champions since Liberal will have three more wins from Oklahoma City.

If Liberal takes two out of three and ends up tied with Hays, Liberal would still be the Jayhawk League champions because they would have a 4-2 season record against the Larks.

If the Bee Jays lose two out of three to the Larks, the Bee Jays would need El Dorado to win two out of three against Hays next week to force a tie for the Jayhawk title.

If the Bee Jays are swept, Hays will win the title outright no mater what happens in El Dorado next week.

Heading in to Saturday’s games, Liberal has a 2-1 lead in the season series, and Liberal’s lone loss to the Larks was 2-1.

Liberal has not won the Jayhawk League since 1999 despite winning national championships in 2000 and 2010.
