|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Bill Nicholson made 6,420 plate appearances. Nicholson was worth 41.8 Wins Above Replacement and 18.7 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 41.8 WAR becomes 42.9 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 18.7 WAA becomes 19.7 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Nicholson 78.4 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).
Bill Nicholson has a Hall Rating of 74, leaving him short of induction to the Hall of Stats.
