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!
