Add Player to FA Pool?

I am trying to recreate a league that I played in 18 years ago (Old Time Baseball). It was made up of players from the 1880s to the 1984. I understand how to add players to the FA pool, but how do I get the right player? For example: robinja01 will give me Jack Robinson and not Jackie Robinson. Is there a place that I can find the correct id number for the player?

Thank you for your help

You find the player IDs at baseball-reference.com. If you do a search for a player, the ID will be in the URL box. For instance, Jackie Robinson is https://www.baseball-reference.com/p...obinja02.shtml. His player ID is robinja2. Click on that link and you'll see what I mean.

the .csv files will also have the player id's for everyone in the game. not at my game comp. but they are somewhere in the stats folder if i recall correctly ... which is assuming a lot.
