Site News - May 2016

May Update:  Helloooooooooooooo!  I know it’s been a very long time since I last updated the site.  I will in no way be able to claim to even come close to the site goals this year… or last year.  I can’t even claim to be fully back this month, but I did manage to put a few articles from spring training (from the Doylestown Intelligencer) and May 31-June 2 from the Chicago Tribune, covering the Phils’ series against the Cubs.


Not as bad as feared…?:  The Phils have gotten off to a surprisingly good start this season.  Not only because of expectations, but also the “advanced numbers” don’t quite match up to the win-loss success.  There is some hope seen in the pitching staff, but the bats need to improve drastically if the Phils are to be a true contender in the near future.  Probably not this year, but there is some hope for a brighter future!


Media Update:  For now, this part of the site is still going to have to rest in peace.  If time allows, maybe I can add some sound clips, or find some YouTube videos that pertain to the 1980 Phils… or something?


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!). Clippings, 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:   Will come as I can get to them.  For now, it may be sporadic, but I am going to try to get back into the monthy updates, even if it is minimal.  Please be patient and enjoy the archive!
