Vince Brown has been hired as the baseball coach at Woodbridge High School, Athletic Director Dave Cowen said Wednesday. Brown resigned as Tustin's coach at the end of last season, citing a need to change direction. The change took him only a few miles south to Woodbridge, a school in the Sea View League with Tustin. He replaces Johnny Ceballos-Rivera, who resigned at the end of last season. Brown, who will continue teaching at Currie Middle School in Tustin, was 138-53 in seven years at Tustin.

Doors keep opening for Zak Brown. Of course, Brown is the one responsible. And boy, are his knuckles getting sore. Brown, 21, a resident of North Hollywood who sees himself on the fast track to Indianapolis, has never met a potential sponsor, promoter or newspaper reporter he wasn't reluctant to pester in his quest toward the top of the racing world. All are routinely subjected to the Zak attack. "If you say no to me, I'll take it as a no," Brown said.

They sat in the dugout Monday, two Tustin baseball players trying their best to act blase. Sure, the Woodbridge game was only 48 hours away. Yes, their former coach, Vince Brown, is now at Woodbridge. And yes, he's the same Vince Brown who told the Tustin players last season he was burned out and going to take a year off, only to show up two months later at a (gasp) rival school. Certainly, this provides extra incentive, does it not? "Nah," third baseman Derek Baker said.

Perhaps it was indicative of just how burned out Vince Brown had become. He didn't spend last year fantasizing about tropical beaches or exotic vacations or climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. He was thinking, instead, about acres and acres of auto parts. Tie-dyed T-shirts. Naugahyde sofa sets. And sunglasses--three for $10. Call it a swap-meet fantasy, call it a cry for help. All Brown knows is that after 20 years of coaching baseball--including the last seven at Tustin High--he had to get out.
