Site News - June 2015

June Update:  School and vacation limited time once more.  I did manage five articles for the website, thanks to the Chicago Tribune archive.  The articles cover the Phils’ games against the Cubs from May 30-June 1.

 

Sometimes Bad is Bad:  One word can describe the Phils’ recent play:  atrocious.  They currently have the worst record in the major leagues… and it isn’t even close.  Maikel Franco has been a bright spot.  Otherwise, it seems that we’re left waiting around to see what the Phils can get for Cole Hamels and Jonathan Papelbon.

 

Media Update:  Still no movement on this.  Now that I am home for the next few weeks, maybe I can squeeze a few hours into this part of the website.

 

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.
