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!
