Site News - July 2016
July Update: And life indeed goes on. Family trips and the fun fun fun of summer conspired to prevent a major update this month. Life is just too busy! I did manage to transcribe articles from the Chicago Tribune from June 7-9, corresponding to the Phils’ games with the Cubs.
And there they go: So much for that decent start. The Phils have reverted to recent form, inflicting a nine-game losing streak on their long-suffering fans. They still have a long way to go! At least the young pitchers look somewhat promising, but there is a dreadful need for bats.
Media Update: For now, this part of the site is still going to have to rest in peace. If time allows, maybe I can add some sound clips, or find some YouTube videos that pertain to the 1980 Phils… or something?
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: Will come as I can get to them. For now, it may be sporadic, but I am going to try to get back into the monthy updates, even if it is minimal. Please be patient and enjoy the archive!
