|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Nolan Ryan pitched 5,386 innings and made 957 plate appearances. Ryan was worth 81.4 Wins Above Replacement (83.6 as a pitcher and -2.3 as a hitter) and 32.7 Wins Above Average (34.9 as a pitcher and -2.3 as a hitter).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 81.4 WAR becomes 84.3 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 32.7 WAA becomes 39.1 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Ryan 154.7 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).
Nolan Ryan has a Hall Rating of 145, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
