Site News - May 2022

May 2022 Update:  I was able to add articles from the Kansas City Star, with coverage throughout the Series from the perspective of Royals’ reporters.  It’s always interesting to see the story from numerous perspectives! 


May Day?  The beginning of the baseball season has seen the Phils stumbling a bit out of the gate.  The big bopper lineup has had it’s ups and downs, and the Phils are lagging behind the Mets and Marlins.  Hopefully the Phils enter hitting season quickly.


Hitless:  The Phillies were on the wrong end of a combined no hitter against the Mets on April 29.  The Mets used five pitchers - Tylor Megill, Drew Smith, Joely Rodriguez, Seth Lugo and Edwin Diaz – to keep the Phils hitless for the game.  Aaron Nola gave up three runs in six inning, taking the loss in a 3-0 final.


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 have selected the Wilmington Morning News for my next local run through the 1980 season.  It is a smaller newspaper, and I should be able to keep a month-to-month pace, at least beginning in June!  May will be very busy, so I may not get much put in this month.
