|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Hal Smith made 2,942 plate appearances. Smith was worth 4.2 Wins Above Replacement and -5.8 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 4.2 WAR becomes 5.0 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 -5.8 WAA becomes 1.6 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Smith 7.9 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).
Hal Smith has a Hall Rating of 7, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
