|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Don Buford made 5,347 plate appearances. Buford was worth 36.0 Wins Above Replacement and 18.3 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 36.0 WAR becomes 36.1 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 18.3 WAA becomes 20.2 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Buford 72.5 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).
Don Buford has a Hall Rating of 68, leaving him short of induction to the Hall of Stats.
