Site News - May 2013

May Update: Life keeps on rolling like a freight train!  I managed to get some articles on the website – mostly thanks to Sports Illustrated’s Vault.  Unfortunately, I have not been able to add any clips – time has been in short supply lately.  Other than the detour with SI, I am still working on June, 1980 articles from the Reading Eagle. However, I did find a YouTube video of the entire broadcast of Game 6 of the World Series, and I have added that to the boxscore page for that game.


Media Update: As time allows, I continue to work on uploading some clips from the NLCS and other parts of the 1980 season.  Since I have a digital file of the Phantastic Phillies record, there may be possibilities there as well.  I am also still periodically checking YouTube for other clips to add as well. If you have any (or know of any) that I can use for the website, contact me.


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 please contact me – scans are fine by me. I am also looking for any YouTube videos from the 1980 season, as Jimdo allows easy connection to these videos.


Future Updates: With pictures added for nearly all games (in a few cases I had to resort to “stock” photos), I am shifting my focus on adding articles and media clips.  My goal for the year is to add five articles and two media clips per month.
