    I really like the layout of this story. The softball field idea is very creative. I also liked that there is info given about their new head coach but also how well they did last season and when their games are this season.

    I really like how the alternative story background is like an actual softball field. I like how short and simple it is with not much wording but what’s there is informative. In the lead/nut graph it has good information about the coach and previous season.

    This Alt. Copy was a create display on this softball season. The quotes were a great addition to guide the transition from last year’s season to this years. However the green used made it a bit difficult to read all of the smaller text and this includes the information about last year on the right. Overall I loved the set up of this Alt. and Abby did a great job of encompassing the upcoming season.

    Informative. I liked the base plate.Text was slightly hard to read and the headlines didn’t make the most sense to me, but it could just be because i am not familiar with softball terminology.

    The layout of this article was very effective. I liked how the whole thing resembled a softball field; it made the article more appealing. It was easy to read as well and although there wasn’t much text, everything written was very effective and interesting.

    I thought this was a very well done and constructed alternative copy story. Right away the colors and visuals grabbed my attention. It was really neat to know the schedule and results from last year and also the upcoming schedule for this season. Overall this alternative copy story was very creative and interactive.
