Site News - November 2022

November 2022 Update:  Still going strong!  Got both August and September articles from the Wilmington Morning News loaded into the site library.  Getting ready to go into that playoff stretch, I want to add…

  •  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 hoping to get through the 1980 playoffs and World Series to complete the Wilmington Morning News… but I may get too caught up in this years run!  I’ve also been dabbling with the Montreal Gazette articles from the 1980 World Series, and may try to finish that up as well.
