|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Dick Wakefield made 2,506 plate appearances. Wakefield was worth 12.9 Wins Above Replacement and 5.3 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 12.9 WAR becomes 13.1 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 5.3 WAA becomes 5.5 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Wakefield 23.0 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).
Dick Wakefield has a Hall Rating of 22, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
