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.
