Front page of the @tampabaytimes for Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2017. Mayor Rick Kriseman wins re-election in St. Petersburg, Fla. Mid-day, news broke that former star pitcher Roy “Doc” Halliday died when his plane crashed in the Gulf of Mexico in Pasco County. The page was designed in advance for the election, but once Halladay’s death was announced, everything on the page shifted down to allow for the overplay treatment of the fatal accident.
