Site News - March 2020

March 2020 Update:  Though I did not finish the entire month of October, I am still steadily adding articles from the Philadelphia Inquirer.  Of course, in the playoffs the amount of articles per day was more than double what it had been during the regular season.  To this point, I have finished the articles from the Inquirer through the NLCS against Houston, as well as the World Series special dated October 14, 1980.  If I can keep up the pace, I should finish the World Series this month.

 

Boys of Spring: One of the surest signs that winter is winding down is the beginning of Spring Training in Clearwater.  Well, the team has arrived and is practicing under the warm Florida sun! Questions remain to be answered before the season starts… but at least there is baseball!

  

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… most importantly free!

 

Future Updates:   If I can keep up my present pace, I should be able to complete the season in the Inquirer either in the coming month.  Once that is finished, I will begin the same process with the Philadelphia Daily News, beginning with spring training.
