|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, John Ward made 8,114 plate appearances and pitched 2,469 innings. Ward was worth 62.3 Wins Above Replacement (34.3 as a hitter and 28.1 as a pitcher) and 18.8 Wins Above Average (11.1 as a hitter and 7.8 as a pitcher).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 62.3 WAR becomes 62.2 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 18.8 WAA becomes 21.7 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Ward 101.3 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).
John Ward has a Hall Rating of 95, making him close to the Hall of Stats borderline—but still on the outside.
