The South Central League refers to two minor league baseball leagues - one that existed in 1906 and another that existed in 1912.

The 1906 league consisted of teams from Arkansas and Oklahoma. The six-team league included the Fort Smith Razorbacks, the Guthrie Senators, the Muskogee Indians, the Shawnee Blues, the South McAlester Miners and the Tulsa Oilers. Guthrie and Shawnee disbanded on July 21, while the whole league disbanded in August. The Miners finished in first place. One notable player, Clyde Milan, spent time in the league. Their first president was J.B. Roe. J.B. McAlester also served as president of the league.

The 1912 league consisted of teams from Texas. Teams in the circuit include the Cleburne Railroaders, Longview Cannibals, Marshall Athletics, Paris Boosters, Texarkana Twins and Tyler Elbertas. Texarkana, despite going only 51-65, were declared the league champions. One player of note in this incarnation of the league is Cotton Tierney.
