Site News - June 2022

June 2022 Update:  Things slowed down a bit in May, as it usually does for me.  I did begin transcribing articles from the Wilmington Morning News, but was not quite able to get through all of the offseason and spring training articles.  

 

Nola Back?  After a down season last year and a slow start to this season, Aaron Nola has been lights out his last few starts.  If we can get ace-level Nola, that will go a long way to put the Phils into contention for the playoffs.

 

Castellanos Struggling:  Going the other way is free agent signing Nick Castellanos.  After a torrid April, Castellanos has hit a rough patch since, hitting only .234 in May.  The Phils will need all their high-priced bats going to maximize their success this season.

   

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 transcribe the Wilmington Morning News after my return from vacation.  It is a smaller newspaper, and I should be able to keep a month-to-month pace once I come home in July.
