Hey everyone, we’ve introduced a new section here at Phillies Nation called ‘academic.’ (it’s 5 boxes down on the right) It’ll be your one stop shop for scholarly papers, articles and resources on the Phillies and baseball in general. I would have liked the inaugural post to be Doug Glanville’s college thesis, but the Baseball Hall of Fame would only send a hard copy, and even that’s copywritten. Even so, upon reading it, our editorial board determined it wouldn’t have made the cut anyway.
That’s not to say yours won’t. This is also an offical call for papers. If any of you have old college research papers or periodical articles about any aspect of baseball or the Phillies, please send them for posting. We’re especially looking for projects which extensively analyze how to beat the Braves.
