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.
