Dorothy Seymour Mills has been added by Oxford University Press as co-author of an acclaimed three-volume history of baseball originally attributed solely to her husband.

Harold Seymour was long credited as author of ''Baseball: The Early Years,'' ''Baseball: The Golden Age'' and ''Baseball: The People's Game.'' The books were published in 1960, 1971 and 1990.

After announcing in March that Harold Seymour was among the first nine recipients of its Henry Chadwick Award for historians, statisticians and archivists, the Society for American Baseball Research added Dorothy Seymour Mills two days later.

Oxford University Press USA executive editor Tim Bent said Tuesday the company was ''delighted to officially set matters straight.''
