Haley Woods is a Bay Area softball legend. She has played and coached softball in the Bay Area for more than 20 years. Haley's softball career began in Burlingame, CA at the age of 5, continued through the West Bay Nuggets for travel ball, Sacred Heart Prep and Burlingame HS for high school ball, and culminated as a four-year starter for the Cal Bears.

Haley was Cal's starting catcher in each of her four years at Cal, and the only Cal player to start every game in 2004, 2005 and 2006.  Cal's official softball guide correctly describes Haley as "one of Cal's all-time greatest hitters, holding the Cal record for RBI's and total bases in a career." Haley led the Cal Bears to victories at every level, including three appearances in the Women's College World Series. Playing at the highest collegiate level, Haley earned a career batting average of .314 and a career slugging % of .584, including 38 doubles, 48 home runs, 413 total bases and she holds the Cal Bears Career Record for RBIs with 191.  Haley was named NCAA NFCA and Easton First Team All-American, Diamond Sports Catcher of the Year, All-Region First Team and Pac-10 First Team. Haley graduated from UC Berkeley with a BS in Political Science, and has since earned a Masters Degree in Education and a Teaching Credential.

Haley has coached at the college, high school and travel ball levels and has enjoyed much success.  She coached for four years with the San Jose Sting where her 18 Gold teams finished 7th at ASA Nationals and, most recently, led her team to a 3rd place finish at PGF Nationals.
