Site News - September 2022

September 2022 Update:  Hey, the engine revved a bit this month.  Once I got going, it was full speed ahead, finishing spring training, as well as the April and May articles in the Wilmington Morning News.

 

Wildcard Fever!   The Phils find themselves in the thick of the wildcard race as we head into September.  Currently, they find themselves in the second wildcard position, ahead of both the San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers, the closest competitors.  Could we possibly finally see another Red October?  We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed.

 

Harper Returns:   The Phillies were heartened to see the return of star outfielder / designated hitter Bryce Harper to the lineup.  Though they obviously misses Harper’s potent bat, the team rallied to keep pace in the pennant race during his absence.  The re-addition of the reigning NL MVP can only strengthen the team as they fight for a slot in the playoffs.

   

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 can’t promise to keep the pace I had this month, but I hope to keep at least a month—to-month pace going forward. I’m getting into the heart of the season in the Wilmington Daily News, and it’s almost like reliving the season!
