Site News - February 2014

February Update:  January turned out to be an even busier month than anticipated!  Lots of meetings, meetings about meetings, and other assorted… meetings!  And, of course, in between meetings I had to actually work.  The schedule, as well as my own growing children, made time lean for the website.  I did, however, reach my goal of 7 articles.  I also added three YouTube clips – maybe not TRULY the sound clips promised, but more media anyway!


It’s Coming!:  It may not be coming with the excitement of prior seasons, but baseball will soon be returning with those magic words:  Pitchers and Catchers Report!


Media Update:  I was able to add links to three official Hall of Fame biographies:  Steve Carlton, Mike Schmidt and Richie Ashburn.  Those videos are located on the personnel page for each Phillie.


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!). Clipping, 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:  I will be continuing my resolution for 2014:  7 new articles added to the site per month, and at least 2 new sound clips (as long as my source holds out).
