|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Ed Swartwood made 3,248 plate appearances and pitched 5 innings. Swartwood was worth 17.2 Wins Above Replacement (17.4 as a hitter and -0.1 as a pitcher) and 9.7 Wins Above Average (9.8 as a hitter and -0.2 as a pitcher).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 17.2 WAR becomes 21.5 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 9.7 WAA becomes 10.9 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Swartwood 41.1 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).
Ed Swartwood has a Hall Rating of 39, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
