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.
