Site News - September 2013

September Update: I managed to get into a groove for a few days this month, and added both clips and articles to the website.  I now have added all the Reading Eagle articles I have for the month of June (there are about 10 days missing in the googlenews archives).  I also added several audio clips (courtesty of The Phantastic Phillies highlight record) and found a YouTube video on the 1980 team (see Media Update below)

 

Mired in Mediocrity:  Since the disastrous few weeks after the all-star break, the Phils have resumed their win again, lose again pattern of the 2013 season leading up to the midsummer break.  The playoffs are a no-go, and it’s time to see what kids may help out in the coming seasons.

 

Media Update:  I found the 1980 Phillies highlight film on YouTube (courtesy of TelRaSports) and have posted it on the multimedia page.  I also added sound clips from several games in July, August and September – I believe five in total.

 

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 August, and made up for not making the July goal as well, at least on average putting me back on track.  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.
