The College World Series has officially addressed the annoying Vanderbilt fan who's driving everyone crazy with his non-stop whistling during games.

The fan, Preacher Franklin, has reportedly been warned to stop whistling during College World Series games, though he doesn't plan on stopping.

Franklin can now be ejected from the College World Series, a spokeswoman for the ballpark told Tennessean.com.

"We are, as a building policy, reactive when we get a slew of negative comments or complaints, both online and in person," Kristyna Engdahl said.

"Then we are obligated to follow our building policy, which is that we give one warning when we are able to address disruptive behavior. After that, we examine whether we take further action."

Franklin is one of two Vanderbilt fans known for whistling during games, though he's the only one at the College World Series. The other, Jeff Pack, hasn't been able to make it yet due to work obligations. Fans of other teams - and viewers on TV - have been annoyed by the whistling during games and would like it to stop.

Vanderbilt is set to take on Mississippi State in the College World Series at 6 p.m. E.T.

The game will be televised on ESPN.
