Question Import Player ??

Where do I find the database to find the player id number to import a player? I looked in the files for about 10 minutes. Maybe I don't know what I am looking for. In previous versions I was able to find this quickly.

From the OOTP Manaul, 11 but still just as good

One 'trick' to finding the player's ID is to visit BaseballReference.com. Look up the player you wish to import, and then check the URL string. The player's unique ID is the portion of the file name before .shtml

I searched the new online manual and the forum, but am still not clear on how to go about importing a player.

Johnny Damon who was previously retired or unsigned just signed with Cleveland, so if I want to add him to my 2012 MLB Quickstart league in OOTP 13 what are the procedures?

if he's retired then just unretire him, have to be in commish mode to do it

From the OOTP Manual
Importing Historical Players

Commissioners have the ability to import individual historical players from the Free Agents, Draft Pool, and Show All Players pages. To import historical players, click on the Import Historical Player action button at the bottom of the page. Choose the database you wish to use. (By default, use the file historical_database.odb found in the data\stats directory in your User Data location.) Then, you then go through a process very similar to that used to import an entire historical league, as described in Adding Historical Leagues.



The main difference between this page and importing an entire historical league is that you must know the player's unique ID, as used in the historical database. Enter this value in the first field, and then select the other options, which are described in detail in Adding Historical Leagues.

Thanks for your help, will you please point to the pages in the online manual where this is described? I have searched the manual but have not had any luck.

The database is located in your documents folder. Documents/Out of the Park Developments/OOTP Baseball 13/stats. The Master.csv file is located there.
