If UC Irvine beats No. 1 overall seed Oregon State in the NCAA baseball regional tonight, Oklahoma State could be getting a big dose of "Superfan" in Stillwater.



UC Irvine has a die-hard fan that was banned by the school from the games in February. Keith Franklin's antics went over the top when he ran on the field to congratulate UC Irvine's coach after his 1,000th win.

He may have been banned from UC Irvine home games, but he's in Corvallis. If the Anteaters make it to the Super Regional (they need a win against Oregon State tonight at 10 p.m.), Franklin will be there.

From the Wall Street Journal's report on "Superfan":

"Beyond his loud vocal stylings, Superfan is known for a repertoire of stadium theatrics. He has a special cheer for each batter, as well as for every run scored. He also celebrates with physical gusto, high-fiving people up and down rows of seats, even headbanging over the dugout. At dire moments when a run is sorely needed, he calls on the crowd to join him in breaking wind to spark a rally."
