What is it about the Woodbridge High baseball program that keeps chasing away coaches? It can't be the facilities. The baseball field at Windrow Park, roughly a mile from the campus, is two years old, looks better than some minor league parks and is a quantum leap from the Warriors' old home, Atherton Park. It can't be the community, which has the commitment and the funds to turn the baseball program into a winner.
