Site News - December 2019

December 2019 Update:  I’ve still been able to keep the month-a-month pace, adding the July 1980 editions of the Philadelphia Inquirer to the site library.  It’s interesting to see the season unfold day-by-day, in the eyes of the reporters who were with the team every day.  Let’s just say that in July, there was not an expectation of a parade in October!

 

Hot Stove: It’s time to see what the Phils do to improve the team for new manager Joe Girardi.  Everyone – from the owner to the youngest Phillies fan – knows that pitching is a dire need to this team to be able to compete.  Hopefully the next few weeks will be very interesting.  They certainly will be enlightening!

  

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, must most importantly free!

 

Future Updates:   Still hoping to keep the current month-to-month pace of adding articles to the site library.  The holiday season may cut into that a bit, but I’ll keep working on it!
