|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Dude Esterbrook made 2,927 plate appearances. Esterbrook was worth 8.6 Wins Above Replacement and -0.6 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 8.6 WAR becomes 10.7 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 -0.6 WAA becomes 4.6 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Esterbrook 19.0 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).
Dude Esterbrook has a Hall Rating of 18, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
