|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Buddy Bell made 10,009 plate appearances. Bell was worth 66.4 Wins Above Replacement and 32.8 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 66.4 WAR becomes 68.4 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 32.8 WAA becomes 36.2 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Bell 133.6 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).
Buddy Bell has a Hall Rating of 126, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
