Question Historical Sim - problem in just year 2

Started a historic MLB with correct teams and started in 1903. Played quickly through that season and moved into 1904 but received a warning that the New York Highlanders roster had seven illegal players, whatever THAT means.

Looked at their roster, and the Highlanders only HAD seven players! Found a few of them on other teams' rosters, but more than half are not in the game at all! Is the database messed up? Any clue what went amiss after just one season?

BTW: playing with "historical lineups" and "historical transactions" checked.

I'm sorry I'm not much help but something similar happened to me a couple years ago going from 1901 to 1902. I just deleted/restarted the league and it worked ok. Hopefully someone will have a better answer.

That did the trick, sort of. It's still kind of wonky, as the game keeps resetting uniforms to OOTP's generic ones, and also keeps putting several teams' pitchers in a rotation several times (the aforementioned Highlanders had Jack Chesbro three times in a 4-man rotation!).

You probably get this all the time but "The Universal Baseball Association, J. Henry Waugh, prop." is maybe the greatest baseball book ever written.

I went to Amazon and read some of the reviews. It sounds like it could apply to a few of us!! About an accountant that's bored with life and creates his own baseball game using dice and he eventually starts communicating with his fictional players. One reviewer said they loved the book but it made him vow to never play strat o matic again. He should play OOTP-no book would stop him from playing OOTP!!!
