Short version: there were three guys named Willie Mays in the 1940s.

(1) the "real" Willie Mays;

(2) His dad, who only played in the Birmingham industrial leagues and shouldn't appear in any DBs; and

(3) A guy named Willie (Pee Wee, Double Duty, Tat, or Chet) Mays, a pitcher/catcher/infielder from 1935 - 1949, mostly for minor teams (like the Van Dyke Colored House of David, Oakland Monarchs, California Eagles, etc.). He was the pitcher for the '46 San Francisco Sea Lions, and may also have played for the St. Louis Stars of the Negro American League in 1937.
The Willie Mays in my universe was the correct one as far as stats go but his birthday was wrong. I noticed this in "1964" he was showing that he was 40. I checked baseball reference and his b-day was in 1931. My universe showed him born in 1924. I just did a quick fix on his date, no problem.

Both of them were drafted as catchers IRL. Morneau converted to 1b in the minors and Walker, I think when he reached the majors, converted to the infield.
