Merwin John William Jacobson (March 7, 1894 – January 13, 1978) was a backup outfielder in Major League Baseball who played for three different teams between 1915 and 1927. Listed at 5 ft 11.5 in (1.82 m), 165 lb., Jacobson batted and threw left-handed. He was born in New Britain, Connecticut.

A decent outfielder with a hard throwing arm, Jacobson entered the majors in 1915 with the New York Giants, playing for them one year before joining the Chicago Cubs (1916) and Brooklyn Robins (1926–1927). His most productive season came in 1926 with Brooklyn, when he posted a .247 batting average with 23 RBI in a career-high 110 games.

In a four-season career, Jacobson hit .230 (76-for-331) with 47 runs and 24 RBI in 133 games, including nine doubles, two triples, seven stolen bases, and a .309 on-base percentage. He made 99 outfield appearances at center field (55), right (42) and left (2), and posted a collective .973 fielding percentage.

Jacobson died in Baltimore, Maryland at age 83.
