Site News - October 2019

October 2019 Update:  Got some momentum going!  I was able to complete all the Philadelphia Inquirer articles from May 1980.  These are now available in the site library!  I also started the process of making the pictures from these issues available in the boxscore pages of each game.  Some of the pictures are decent quality, while others are not great… but they’re better than nothing!


Disappointment: After the buzz of signing Bryce Harper and trading for J.T. Realmuto, the Phils’ performance in 2019 was… well, disappointing.  Out of the playoffs, locked into a fourth place finish, this is a team that did not achieve what they set out to do.  It remains to be seen what changes will be made to the team to try to get them where the fans pine to be once more – the playoffs.


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:   I want to keep on working towards the goal of getting the entire season of Inquirer articles in the site library.  I cannot promise to keep the current pace going, but I will try to at least keep up regular updates!
