|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Jim Russell made 4,147 plate appearances. Russell was worth 18.2 Wins Above Replacement and 2.9 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 18.2 WAR becomes 18.5 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 2.9 WAA becomes 6.0 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Russell 29.3 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).
Jim Russell has a Hall Rating of 28, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
