Site News - April 2017

April Update:  Just days after the passing of 1980 Phillies Manager Dallas Green, the World Champions lost another member, as long-time Phillie Ruben Amaro died on March 31.  RIP Mr. Amaro, and my condolences to the Amaro family and the Phillies organization.

 

Play Ball:  Nothing quite denotes the coming of spring as the arrival of baseball!  The Phils started the regular season with a win, but have been up and down since then.  They may be up, they may be down, but we’ll always be Phillies fans.  It’s a family curse!

 

Media Update:  Nothing to report this month.

 

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!
