The PWBL had franchises in Alameda, Atwater, Auburn, Fresno, Lodi, Sacramento, Salinas, San Rafael, San Francisco and Carson City, Nevada. These franchises were the backbone of the Pacific West Baseball League and its foundation now and in the future. The PWBL were formed of two divisions with each franchise playing a 31 game league schedule. There will be a season ending championship series to crown the PWBL champion during the last week of July and first week of August.

The PWBL comprised 10 teams throughout Northern California and Western Nevada. The league folded in 2012 and led to the creation of the Golden State Collegiate Baseball League, where many of the below teams play today.
