Site News - May 2015

May Update:  This is my busiest time of the year, and this year was no exception.  I did manage to add an odd assortment of articles from the Chicago Tribune.  Time was just too sparse for anything else.

 

Phils Woes:  Few had any illusions about the Phils making the playoffs this year, but their performance thus far shows that the team is multiple seasons away from contending.  It’s going to be a long dry spell, I’m afraid.

 

Media Update:  Not much can be said at this point, there are no new media files.  I want to get ahead on this during the summer – and it’s almost here!

 

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.
