Wichita, KS

From BR Bullpen

Wichita is located in central Kansas, on the Arkansas River, 80 miles southwest of Topeka, KS. Wichita was the site of the 1949 College World Series, after which the event found a permanent home in Omaha, NE. Since 1935, it has hosted the National Baseball Congress World Series.

The names of teams from Wichita in the first two decades of the 20th century were quite fluid, with Jobbers, Witches and Wolves all being used at various times, and sometimes simultaneously.
