Site News - April 2015
April Update: Well, I didn’t get started on the Doylestown Daily Intelligencer articles like I had planned. I did, however, run into a new out-of-town source for a few Phillies articles, from the Chicago Daily Tribune. I added articles from August 12-14, 1980 this month.
I Mean No Offense: No baseball fan will confuse this year’s Phillies with the Murders’ Row 1927 Yankees. Or the Phillies from 2006-2010. But we’ll keep watching!
Media Update: Again, nothing new to report on this front. This time of year is just too crazily busy for a teacher. I hope to make up for this during the summer months.
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!). Clippings, photocopies, whatever contains part of the story of the 1980 Phillies is acceptable. I am also looking for any YouTube videos from the 1980 season, as Jimdo allows easy connection to these videos.
Future Updates: Now that the Reading Eagle articles are completed, I am planning on going through my stash of articles from the Doylestown Daily Intelligencer. I also hope to get started on the sound clips from the 1980 season as well.
