Site News - March 2022

March 2022 Update:  Time became more cramped this month, so I had to sacrifice the out-of-town newspaper, concentrating on finishing the World Series coverage in the Camden Courier-Post.  I was able to complete that parsed goal, and am now in the process of finishing the post-season coverage in the newspaper.

 

Lockout:  Well… as of now, things are not looking good. The beginning of the season looks to be in jeopardy as the owners and the players continue their antagonistic negotiations.  I guess we’ll see what happens…

 

RIP:  Condolences and prayers for the family and friends of Jeremy Giambi, who died on February 9.  Giambi, the brother of fellow player Jason Giambi, hit 52 homers and knocked in 209 runs with a .263 average over six major league seasons.  Giambi played for the Phils in 2002, hitting 12 homers in 82 games after being acquired from the Oakland A’s in May. Rest in peace, Mr. Giambi.

   

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 am finishing up the post-season articles in the Camden Courier post, which I hope will be complete in the next month.  After that, I will prepare to begin working on another local paper – either  from Wilmington or Allentown.  I will also go back to World Series articles from the Kansas City Times and Kansas City Star newspapers for viewpoints from the other side.
