Site News - May 2017

May Update:  The Phils’ struggles in 2017 makes one wistful for a summer like 1980.  Added in a few spring training articles from March of 1980 from the Reading Eagle. 


Howard Done?  The news of Ryan Howard’s release from the Atlanta Braves organization may put a final nail in the coffin of a once-promising career.  We remember what the Big Piece meant to the Phils’ second world championship in 2008.


Media Update:  Nothing to report this month.


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!
