Baseball Mercury
The British publication Baseball Mercury was edited by baseball historian William Morgan from 1972 until
1989. Fifty-one issues were produced in all, and the publication's scope covered both domestic and international
baseball, as well as softball. Below you can access PDFs of all issues that have been made available
as part of Project COBB (the Project for the Chronicling of British Baseball). To access a PDF,
