Roster error on the 1955 Dodgers

I'm in the process of replaying the 1955 World Series. On the Dodgers roster Dixie Howell is listed as a relief pitcher! The Dixie Howell on the Dodgers was a catcher. There was another Dixie Howell that was a pitcher for CLE, CINN and the CWS who played roughly about the same time. I'm still learning about this wonderful game. How do I fix this roster issue? Thank you!

Thank you so much for the help. In the process of this I learned a little bit about Dixie Howell the pitcher. He was a POW in Europe. He had a few nice seasons with the White Sox (relief pitcher - threw a sinker ball). In 1960 he was in Cleveland's Spring Training camp. After doing some running he was complaining of chest pains. The doctor sent him to the hospital, and a few hours later he sadly passed away from a heart attack at 40 years old.

He holds the MLB record for the longest time between when he made his major league debut as a pitcher (1940) and when he got his first win (1955). Interesting guy.

My 1955 Brooklyn Roster is still showing Dixie Howell as a pitcher! I even created a new historical 1955 WS replay yet the Dixie Howell issue remains. What could I be doing wrong?

Don't know. Maybe the updated file hasn't been added yet.
