True Fielding Positions of Retired Players

Having created a historical league specifically to import all historical players in the MLB database and with the Import Real Minor Leagues (1915+) enabled, I was filtering the MLB player list by age. I noticed that all position players (i.e., non-pitchers) show a Position of 1B, not the primary position they played during their careers. Is there a way for this to be shown; e.g., Ernie Banks showing his true career position of SS, Yogi Berra as a C, etc.?

Why do I care? The goal of my research is to prep a geographic-centric fictional league where players will be aligned by their birth state/region. However, need to also ensure that, for example, a team doesn't have eight SS and no OF! (Birthplace="Unknown" provides plenty of opportunities to re-balance by "swapping" players...I am, after all, the Omnipotent Commisioner For Life of this fictional league! )
