|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Billy Hamilton made 7,609 plate appearances. Hamilton was worth 63.3 Wins Above Replacement and 39.4 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 63.3 WAR becomes 68.7 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 39.4 WAA becomes 39.5 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Hamilton 139.8 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).
Billy Hamilton has a Hall Rating of 131, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
