BRITISH BASEBALL DATA

  

 

 

 

This site covers the recent history of British baseball.

The aim of this website is to, eventually, have a record of final league standings, playoff and finals results.

As you will see, there are many gaps and incomplete years, so if anyone reading this can fill in any gaps, for instance, league tables, playoff results etc then please contact me.

**ROSTERS UPDATE**

The rosters of National champion clubs from 1985 - 2008 are now complete. They can be found by clicking on "year by year" on the menu to the left, then simply choosing the relevant season.

 

**NATIONAL CHAMPS' ROSTERS**

I've started adding the rosters for the past National Champion clubs. This should be fairly straightforward until 1985, when things get more difficult. So if anyone still has old finals programmes or scoresheets, let me know so I can add them to the website.

 

 

**NATIONAL LEAGUE 2009**

This year sees a few changes to the National League. Hertfordshire Falcons are in but the Northern clubs are out, having decided not to compete at the highest level this year, meaning there will be just five teams in the NL for this season. More.

 

 

**Classic finals article**

Joe Gray of the GB Scorers Association has written an article on Classic post-war finals, which can be found here.

 

 

**LIVERPOOL ROBINS**

I recently discovered that three-time National champion Liverpool Tigers were previously the Liverpool Robins, winners of the first post-WWII Championship in 1948.

Thanks to Joe Gray of the GB Baseball Scorers Association for providing me with this info.

 

**PROJECT COBB LAUNCHED**

The Project for the Chronicling of British Baseball (Project Cobb) has been officially launched. Project Cobb's home is on the new Great Britain Baseball Scorers Association website, and can be found at www.gbbsa.org.uk/cobb.html.

The overarching aims of Project Cobb are to serve as a central repository for different pieces of research into the history of British baseball (from when it was first played under modern rules to the present day), to publicise research efforts, to make findings available in the public domain and to promote record keeping. Towards this goal, there is a central research registry and a list of project collaborators, which will make it easier for people with information to share to find the best people to contact.

If you are interested in getting your research project added to the registry or if you would like to become a collaborator, contact details can be found on the website. Please also get in touch if you are interested in starting a piece of research and want to discuss ideas.

 

 

**NEW SECTION ON THE 1950'S**

It's not a lot, but this decade deserves to be covered. I only wish I had more info to add!

 

**REQUEST**

I would like to write a page on baseball in the 1950's. If anyone has anything from this era, like league tables etc I would be interested in reading it.

 

**THANKS**

A big thank you to Dan & Jane Santos for sending me the 1986 finals programme I've been after for many years!
