He wanted another chance to lead the Sailors, as he did four years ago before he was abruptly let go without given a reason. A little more than two months ago, Chalmers, who remained a teacher at Harbor and worked as an assistant for rival Corona del Mar's baseball team, was put in charge of the Sailors' baseball team once again. Since then he grew more excited to lead a team that features two Division I-bound pitchers.

The new sports complex, Bill Sumner insisted, will not be a 5,000-seat behemoth of a stadium. Its lights will not shine into neighbors' homes through the night, the longtime Corona del Mar High School track coach said. And its footprint, Sumner added, will not be any larger than the aging, patched-up track and field that are already there. Sumner - who is spearheading the high school's efforts to revamp its outdoor sports facilities - wanted to make that much clear Thursday, as he showed off a series of illustrations depicting a state-of-the-art field complex that would seat about 1,400 and include lights, new bathrooms, two team rooms and two snack bars.
