Site News - July 2017

July Update:  Didn’t actually put anything on the site this month, BUT I was working with this site in mine (see Found! Below). 

 

Still Painful:  There have been some moments – and it’s good to see what Aaron Nola has done this season, and Aaron Altherr has been solid.  Maybe we’re starting to see the foundation being put in place?

 

Media Update:  Nothing to report this month.  If you see a source for the 1980 Phillies, please let me know, and I will see about adding it to the archive.

 

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.

 

FOUND!  I have found a treasure trove of newspaper articles from the 1980 season.  It will take me years to get through what I have been able to find, thanks to newspapers.com.  I have found articles from the Inquirer and Daily News, as well as newspapers from Wilmington and Allentown.  I am still looking for sources from the old Philadelphia Bulletin (I believe Richie Ashburn did a weekly article that season). Clippings, photocopies, whatever contains part of the story of the 1980 Phillies is appreciated. 

 

 

Future Updates:   Still sporadic, but I am going to try to get back into the monthly updates, even if it is minimal.  Please be patient and enjoy the archive!
