Fictional with some historic players?

Does anyone play mostly fictional with the occasional "real player" thrown in? If so, when do you add the real player?

For example, say I started a fictional league in 1940 and started simming. At some point I'd want to manually add Jackie Jensen to the league but I don't want him to just magically appear in the majors in 1950 at the age of 23 (like he did in real life). I'd like to add him to a feeder league a few seasons earlier and then just allow things to progress randomly.

Has anyone had any success doing this? I've tried manually creating feeder league players with very, very high potential ratings (just as a test) but it hasn't really been working out. That is, they don't seem to be developing very well.

I dont use ( or properly understand the mechanics of ) feeder leagues, so that portion of your question will need to be addressed by other, more knowledgeable folks than I. That being said, I have often added historical players out of context both into fictional and historifictional leagues.

The only significant issue that has arisen is that you have to import the player from his rookie season unless youre willing to overlook the historical stats that will be dragged along with him upon import. Short of doing some sort of export-edit-delete-reimport samba, I dont know how to prevent this, at least within the context of the in-game db.

Perhaps Spritz, with his loquacialistic databasedextrousity, can offer other solutions.
