|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Sammy Sosa made 9,896 plate appearances. Sosa was worth 58.6 Wins Above Replacement and 28.2 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 58.6 WAR becomes 59.6 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 28.2 WAA becomes 36.0 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Sosa 124.4 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).
Sammy Sosa has a Hall Rating of 117, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
