Keira Goerl's repertoire and command are the envy of Southland high school softball pitchers--and the bane of batters. When she steps into the circle for Moreno Valley's Valley View High, Goerl contemplates fastball, changeup, drop, drop curve, rise and screwball. "It doesn't matter what the count is," said Goerl, a senior right-hander. "I'll throw any pitch any time, depending on the situation."

Former Angels closer Troy Percival remains open to coaching at the major league level, but the window for such a career move does not appear to be wide. Percival, who was on the mound when the Angels clinched their only World Series championship in 2002, is entering his second season as the head coach at Moreno Valley High School, a position he expects to give up after this or the 2015 season. He is also forming his own racing team and spent part of Sunday flying his Beechcraft Bonanza A36 single-engine plane - Percival got his pilot's license a few years ago - to Bakersfield to buy a modified dirt-track car. Percival, 44, plans to own the team but won't drive competitively.

Army Sgt. Clayton G. Dunn II grew up knowing he wanted to be a soldier. The Moreno Valley native, who was killed May 26 in Iraq, was a second-generation soldier whose father, Roy, served in the Army for 22 years. "He was brought up that way," said Dunn's wife, Haidy. "Ever since he was little, he would play in his dad's boots and helmet." That helmet became a part of a memorial, with a white cross, flags and flowers, erected on the lawn of his parents' home.
