Jim Brock, Arizona State's baseball coach, never saw Sean Rees pitch at San Diego Mission Bay High, but he knew what to expect from a kid who grew up less than a mile from the beach. "You tend to stereotype kids who live in San Diego as lazy and unmotivated," Brock said. "A kid from San Diego, you'd be more interested in the further he lives from the beach." But it wasn't long before Brock realized that Rees was not typical.

Perfection was three outs away Tuesday afternoon for Mission Bay High School pitcher Sean Rees. When it was over, he was just happy to come away with a victory. Rees, a senior left-hander, struck out 16 and threw a perfect game for six innings before settling for a 6-3 victory over City Western League rival Kearny. Rees lost his perfect game and no-hitter to Kearny's first batter in the bottom of the seventh, Eric Mercado, who doubled to right-center field.

Sean Rees wasn't used in relief much during his days at Mission Bay High School. However, considering the results of his past couple of days pitching in the California State Games, Rees might consider spending more time in the bullpen. Rees came on in the fifth inning Saturday and earned the victory as the Padres, a team of high school all-stars from San Diego and Orange counties, defeated the Brewers of San Fernando Valley, 9-8.

Sean Rees, arguably the best left-handed high school pitcher in the county, is really a hitter at heart. A senior at Mission Bay, Rees possess a crackling fastball, sharp curve, good control . . . and an itch to hit. Hitters--not pitchers--such as San Francisco Giant first baseman Will Clark and Kansas City Royal third baseman George Brett are his role models. "I'd rather hit than pitch, definitely, because you play every day," Rees said. "I love playing.

Senior Cesar Gutierrez said he has had the dream since his freshman year. He wanted to pitch against Sean Rees in a championship game. Nice, but it didn't seem likely. Gutierrez hadn't started a game since he threw a 1-hitter against Montgomery in mid-April or pitched since the beginning of May. Even that was an improvement on his sophomore and junior years. He missed the sophomore season with torn ligaments in his knee, then was academically ineligible after a few games the next year.

Many baseball players, at any level, dream about a fairy-tale season. A season void of slumps. David Woodhouse, the San Diego Section Player of the Year, had that type of season. Woodhouse, the Barons' ace pitcher, found out about the award Tuesday night at Bonita Vista's baseball banquet. "That means I've had a pretty successful season," Woodhouse said. "People have recognized what I have done."
