Late Royals centerpiece

The Kansas City Star (09.04.2014)
This example showed some norms on the night sports copy desk: a game that ended close to the first deadline and was slated to be the section front’s centerpiece.

I juggled speed and accuracy as I edited the column and game story and wrote the decks, captions, jump headlines and overline. Since the centerpiece is often a product of teamwork, others wrote “Hand it to Alex,” along with the standings box.
