Site News - September 2020

September 2020 Update:  Like the Energizer Bunny… still going.  Another month ticked off the 2020 Demolition Derby calendar, another month of the Philadelphia Daily News logged into the site library.


R-O-L-A-I-D-S: Unfortunately, the Phils just don’t seem to be able to get any relief.  This bullpen is not just bad… it’s historically bad.  Nevertheless, the Phils somehow manage to be haning in the NL East race with the Braves and the upstart Marlins.  The Phils hope that new acquisitions Brandon Workman, Heath Hembree and David Phelps can help solidify the one glaring weakness on the club.


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:   To this point I’ve been able to keep up the month-to-month pace.  I don’t know how much longer I can keep that up with the work schedule picking up in earnest, but I shall continue to do my best to add articles.  The Daily News articles are getting into the most interesting parts of the year, so my interest shall be piqued!
