Site News - March 2019

March 2019 Update:  Did you miss me?  I know it’s been awhile, but real life and adult responsibilities (like being Dad) have cut in mightily on the free time to spend.  I have put in an article or two along the way, but not enough to warrant an “update” until this month.  There are now articles from the Philadelphia Inquirer included through April 10, 1980!  That means since the last update eleven months ago, eleven new articles have been added.


Ready for 2019!  Did you hear that the Phils signed Bryce Harper?  I know, EVERYONE’S heard about Bryce Harper.  Along with the acquisitions of J.T Realmuto and Jean Segura, it is shaping up to be an exciting 2019 season for the Phils!


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:   Can’t promise a return to regular monthly updates, but I’ll be trying to poke my head in here from time to time to add a thing or two.  Next up will be the Philadelphia Inquirer’s 1980 season preview magazine that was published on April 10, 1980.  Like most of you, life continues to be a crazy ride!
