UNC's Horton has a special knack

The Major League Baseball team that drafts Josh Horton today will get a hitter with scary hand-eye coordination, a fielder with a rocket arm and a base runner with plenty of speed. But Horton's best trait can't be tracked by a tape measure, radar gun or stopwatch. "Josh has got the best demeanor of a baseball player of probably any kid I've ever coached, and that's why he's going to be a great pro," North Carolina coach Mike Fox said. (Durham Herald-Sun)
