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.
