Those fans who followed this year’s College World Series likely became familiar with the story of Micah Ahern. The 7-year-old boy from Arlington was not only the TCU Horned Frogs’ biggest supporter, but he also was an adopted member of the team complete with his own locker inside the TCU clubhouse at Lupton Stadium.

Nicknamed “Superhero Micah” for the way he courageously battled cancer — a fight that included more than 10 operations since 2010, Ahern died Thursday.
