|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Cal Ripken Jr. made 12,883 plate appearances. Ripken Jr. was worth 96.1 Wins Above Replacement and 53.5 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 96.1 WAR becomes 97.2 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 53.5 WAA becomes 57.6 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Ripken Jr. 200.9 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).
Cal Ripken Jr. has a Hall Rating of 189, making him not only a member of the Hall of Stats—but one of the very best players of all time.
