Due to the different opportunities presented to Black and Latino players before integration, the Hall Rating of these players does not accurately reflect their Hall of Fame cases. When possible, the Hall of Stats uses Eric Chalek’s Negro League MLEs to present an alternate Hall Rating for prominent early Black and Latino stars. Jud Wilson has a 178 Hall Rating using these MLEs. The rest of the stats on this page come from real game data, not MLEs.
|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Jud Wilson made 3,556 plate appearances. Wilson was worth 34.4 Wins Above Replacement and 23.7 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 34.4 WAR becomes 62.6 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 23.7 WAA becomes 24.2 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Wilson 106.2 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).
Jud Wilson has a Hall Rating of 99.8, making him close to the Hall of Stats borderline—but still on the outside.
