Site News - July 2013

July Update: A couple of family trips interrupted the “extra time” to work on the site.  However, I was able to use some of my paper sources to add some World Series articles to the site.  I added articles from the Philadelphia Daily News (Oct. 23), the Philadelphia Journal (Oct. 28) and the Camden Courier-Post (also Oct. 28).  I also added a few new clips from The Phantastic Phillies through YouTube.  The two added this month were from the June 30 game against the Montreal Expos. 

 

Phillies All-Stars:  Congratulations to Domonic Brown for making his first All-Star Team.  Brown had taken a hot month in June to create a nice first full season as a starter for the Phils.  Pitcher Cliff Lee is the other representative from the Phillies.

 

Media Update:  I have figured out the process I will take to create some YouTube audio clips from the Phantastic Phillies record, so hopefully that will come more regularly.  Of course, I am also looking for other YouTube videos, as well as other sources to include.

 

Digital Pictures Needed: I’d still love pictures of the 1980 season If you have something (for free – I’m poor and this is a non-profit site!), please let me know through the contact section.

 

Wanted: I am still looking for any and all articles from the 1980 season to include in the website.  In particular, I seek the Philadelphia papers, which I have very limited access to. Anyone that has copies of the Inquirer or the Daily News or other area newspapers please contact me – digital scans are fine by me (and in fact are preferable, as I don’t get in trouble with the wife for cluttering up the house!). I am also looking for any YouTube videos from the 1980 season, as Jimdo allows easy connection to these videos.

 

Future Updates: I was able meet my monthly goal for June!  As stated before, my goal for the rest of the year is to add five articles and two media clips per month.  I will also add game pictures as I find them, and may include clipped images of the newspapers from games as they are available.
