|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Topsy Hartsel made 5,842 plate appearances. Hartsel was worth 31.4 Wins Above Replacement and 10.2 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 31.4 WAR becomes 32.9 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 10.2 WAA becomes 11.7 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Hartsel 54.0 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).
Topsy Hartsel has a Hall Rating of 51, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
