|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Shoeless Joe Jackson made 5,697 plate appearances. Jackson was worth 62.3 Wins Above Replacement and 40.3 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 62.3 WAR becomes 63.9 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 40.3 WAA becomes 41.0 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Jackson 137.7 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).
Shoeless Joe Jackson has a Hall Rating of 129, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
