    One Super fan loves the Texas Rangers and Globe Life Park so much she's turned her classroom into a shrine to the team.

    Inside Lois Lindsey Elementary School in McKinney is a classroom like no other.

    "So this is the entrance of my classroom," teacher Theresa Nolte said.

    Nolte is a life long fan of the Texas Rangers. So now she has decorated her classroom with memorabilia. Some she collected. Other items have been donated by her students and other teachers.

    The death toll from Typhoon Hagibis climbed to 53 on Tuesday, days after it tore through Japan and left hundreds of thousands of homes wrecked, flooded or out of power. Hagibis caused more than 200 rivers to overflow when it hit the island nation on Saturday.

    She grew up going to the games with her father. Now she and her husband are sharing that passion with their own children.

    "There's so many memories there that are priceless that we've made with our kids," Nolte said.

    Like spending 11 hours at the park for a rain delayed game. Or watching a pennant race game on the stadium big screen with Rangers players during the pennant chase of 2011.

    "The players came back on the field and a lot of their kids and they all came out on the field," her husband Mitch Nolte said. "They started selling beer again and we all just kind of hung out until 12 or 1 in the morning for a west coast game."

    Nolte even has ballpark chairs from the old stadium in her classroom.

    "They sat on our back porch for years just doing nothing," Mitch Nolte said. "My wife finally said hey I'll take them to school and use them at school. I said that's great idea."

    Quadruple Murder Suspect Brings Body to Police Station

    [NATL] Quadruple Murder Suspect Brings Body to Police Station

    A Roseville, California, man is in custody after he turned himself in to police in connection to a quadruple homicide.  The body of one of his victims was in the car he drove to the police station in Mount Shasta, more than 200 miles away from the original Roseville crime scene.

    So the Noltes are going to hate saying goodbye to Globe Life Park in Arlington.

    "I'm a little sad," Theresa said. "We spend a lot of time there. It's kind of like our second home. I feel like we are there all the time.

    But they're excited for what the new stadium will provide and already have their seats reserved.

    "A little more expensive," Mitch said.  "Just about in the same place. So should be great seats. At least we won't be sitting in 102 degree weather."
