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.
