|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Blondie Purcell made 4,875 plate appearances and pitched 581 innings. Purcell was worth 2.0 Wins Above Replacement (5.2 as a hitter and -3.2 as a pitcher) and -15.6 Wins Above Average (-7.6 as a hitter and -8.0 as a pitcher).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 2.0 WAR becomes 3.6 adjWAR. Then, WAA is adjusted by ignoring negative seasons (thus, truly capturing a player’s peak seasons) and making similar adjustments for catchers and relief pitchers. After these adjustments, the -15.6 WAA becomes 0.8 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Purcell 5.1 wWAR. wWAR is then converted to Hall Rating. A Hall Rating of 100 represents the Hall of Stats borderline (similar to OPS+ or wRC+, where 100 represents league average).
Blondie Purcell has a Hall Rating of 5, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
