Atavist | Hardball 2016
This is the second year we moved our special South Texas baseball preview into the Atavist CMS. There were some minor tweaks based off what I learned laying out the 2015 version.
The first major change was working with photographer Gabe Hernandez to get section head photos that could 1) typify baseball and softball and 2) render appropriately according to device so it looked good no matter how someone accessed it.
Another big difference is the addition of stories that were written separate from the preview, in the weeks before the special section went to print. The photos for the added stories were gorgeous and I felt they would add value to the final product online, so those earlier stories gained a second life online and became part of the final online presentation of the baseball preview.
