|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Lou Whitaker made 9,967 plate appearances. Whitaker was worth 75.0 Wins Above Replacement and 43.0 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 75.0 WAR becomes 76.6 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 43.0 WAA becomes 43.3 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Whitaker 154.5 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).
Lou Whitaker has a Hall Rating of 145, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
