October 2022 Update: I was able to keep up the momentum I gathered last month, completing the Jun and July articles in the Wilmington Morning News.
Stumbling? The Phils seem to be running out of steam at precisely the wrong time. At the time of this update, the Phils have lost 10 of their last 14 games, and were struggling to stay on top of the equally struggling Milwaukee Brewers for the last wild card spot for the 2022 playoffs. It remains to be seen if the Phils can manage to hang on… and I can’t say that their recent play has encouraged much hope for a playoff run.
Bailey’s Not Faltering: The one bright spot in the Phils’ recent decent into the pit of despair has been Bailey Falter. Since returning to the major leagues in mid-August, Falter has gone 6-1, helping to keep the otherwise lethargic club in the hunt for the playoffs.
Still On the Lookout For:
- Pictures from the 1980 season. Looking for digital copies of pictures that can be posted on the site.
- Articles from the Philadelphia Bulletin. Richie Ashburn used to do a weekly article in that newspaper. Online, scanned, clipped… most importantly free!
Future Updates: It will be tough to keep up the pace of the last two months, but I will keep forging on with the Wilmington Morning News. The pennant stretch is coming up, and I look forward to seeing the chase from the articles of Hal Bodley.
