Site News - July 2022
July 2022 Update: Summer is a fun time… a wonderful time… and maybe not the best time to be working on websites! I got through a few more spring training articles, but the progress has slowed quite a bit.
Them’s the Breaks? The Phils are facing some tough times with injuries from two of the team’s regulars. Reigning MVP Bryce Harper suffered a broken thumb after being hit by a pitch on June 25. This is after losing second baseman Jean Segura to a broken finger.
Manager Change: The Phils’ rough beginning cost manager Joe Girardi his job. Girardi was relieved of his duties with the Phils sporting a 22-29 record, good for third base and a 12½ game deficit to the Mets. Rob Thomson was tapped to be the interim manager for the struggling team.
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: I will continue to work on transcribing the Wilmington Morning News after my return from vacation. It may continue to be a bit slow going for awhile, but I hope to continue working on it as best as I can!
