Far West League (collegiate summer baseball league)

The Far West League (FWL) was a collegiate summer baseball league based on the west coast of the United States that serves primarily California and Oregon. It was formed as part of a merger between the West Coast League/Tri-State and Pacific West Baseball League, even though the PWBL is still in operation.
