Pitching comes easy to Rene Arias. Although only a sophomore on the Fullerton High School varsity, he is perfectly comfortable on the mound. His rapid adjustment took far less effort than Arias made several years ago, when he faced the culture shock and bigotry of life in a new country with a new language. Arias first played baseball with his family on the streets of Acapulco, Mexico, where he was born. It was a hitter's game, but he didn't get to hit.

S low down . . . Right here, this is where I used to live." The apartment complex where Rene Arias once lived could use a fresh coat of paint. Maybe two. Still, it is not the worst building on the street. This Fullerton neighborhood, while not yet in need of a bulldozer, is in decline. Apartments with disheveled lawns line both sides of the street. On the corner, a man sells produce from the back of a truck. Down the street, a building has been roped off by the police.

There are sibling rivalries, and then there's the special relationship between Fullerton High School pitcher Rene Arias and Sunny Hills outfielder Jon Montgomery. Arias, a native of Mexico, moved into Montgomery's home 2 1/2 years ago after Arias' mother moved back to Mexico. He has remained at Fullerton and has developed into one of the school's premier athletes. He pitched a no-hitter in the Southern Section 3-A division playoffs as a sophomore. He was the starting varsity quarterback last fall and was among the county's top three-point shooters in basketball.
