February 2023 Update: Got a quicker jump on the Wilmington Evening Journal than anticipated! Got through Spring Training and the entire month of April. It helps that there are usually only one or two articles in each edition! No side tasks this month.
Go Birds! I know that this is a Phillies site, but I would be remiss if I did not recognize our Philadelphia Eagles, who are heading to Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona, to play the Chiefs. It is good to see them follow up on the Phils’ success of last season!
Just Around The Corner: It feels like just yesterday that we were all watching the Phils in the World Series. The defense of their National League Pennant begins in just a few weeks when spring training begins in just about a week and a half… just a few days after the Super Bowl! And the Phils made one more signing since my last update: Infielder Josh Harrison signed a contract for the 2023 season. With that, the roster is probably complete… for now!
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: I am continuing to plug in articles from the Wilmington Evening Journal. One caveat: I am beginning a pretty intensive training for work over the next few months, so progress will slow quite a bit in the short term. That head start I got in January will come in pretty handy!
