|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Wade Boggs made 10,740 plate appearances and pitched 2 innings. Boggs was worth 91.5 Wins Above Replacement (91.4 as a hitter and 0.0 as a pitcher) and 57.3 Wins Above Average (57.4 as a hitter and 0.0 as a pitcher).
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 91.5 WAR becomes 92.7 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 57.3 WAA becomes 59.0 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Boggs 198.9 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).
Wade Boggs has a Hall Rating of 187, making him not only a member of the Hall of Stats—but one of the very best players of all time.
