Meet Josh Horton -- the starting shortstop for the College World Series runnerup, North Carolina.<br><br>Nah, it's not obvious that Horton is a baseball fanatic. And this is just one corner of his bedroom.

Horton lives in good baseball company with UNC third baseman Joe Peitropaoli, second baseman Bryan Steed and former outfielder Matt Ellington. And of course, to hold onto the memories of former UNC star and current pitcher for the Detroit Tigers, Andrew Miller, the Floridian-ish landscape hangs on their living room wall (Miller is from Gainesville, Fla.). Miller gets to live large in Detroit, Horton and his roommates get a tacky pelican.

After a long day of classes and baseball, what better way to unwind than with a little guitar? Horton is not looking to make a switch from starting shortstop to Jimmy Page-wannabe (or at least he hasn't officially announced his decision), but he's always looking to challenge his roommates to a round of Playstation Guitar Hero.

Some healthy stuff -- salad, eggs, corn, strawberries -- but honestly, who keeps a bag of lemons in their refrigerator?

Kept on the front of the refrigerator is this: a formal notice from their landlord about their excessive clutter. Horton and his teammates manage to set records on the diamond and in their apartment complex. According to their landlord, they are the messiest tenants.

To match Miller's painting in the living room, Horton has this masterpiece in his bedroom -- an $8 bargain he snatched on Franklin St. What a beaut.

The outside of Horton's off-campus apartment in Chapel Hill. Don't let the Mercedes in front fool you.
