Site News - March 2015

March Update:  The Reading Eagle is done!  I have finished all available articles in my own collection through October 30th, 1980.  I’ll continue to check dates after that, but I think I can safely say that the 1980 season story at told by the Reading Eagle is about as complete as I am capable of making it. 

 

Ready for the Season:  The rotation isn’t exactly Halladay-Lee-Hamels.  The lineup isn’t what it was in 2008.  But this year’s version of the Fightin’ Phils is nearly ready to start the 2015 season.

 

Media Update:  I apologize for the lack of updates in the media sections.  Right now things are just too busy to devote the several hours needed to get this going again.  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.
