Doug Tucker came to Kansas City to be the lead sports writer for the Associated Press just when the Kansas City Royals were getting good. He not only covered their first World Series appearance in 1980 but their first World Championship five years later. He also covered their two most recent World Series appearances, including the 2015 World Series championship. He also covered national championships and near-misses for area college sports teams and a pretty successful run for the Kansas City Chiefs.
