|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Wild Bill Widner pitched 522 innings and made 247 plate appearances. Widner was worth -1.5 Wins Above Replacement (-1.1 as a pitcher and -0.4 as a hitter) and -4.6 Wins Above Average (-4.2 as a pitcher and -0.4 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the -1.5 WAR becomes -1.4 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 -4.6 WAA becomes 0.0 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Widner -1.4 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).
Wild Bill Widner has a Hall Rating of -1, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
