|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Smoky Burgess made 5,014 plate appearances. Burgess was worth 33.6 Wins Above Replacement and 14.3 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 33.6 WAR becomes 39.6 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 14.3 WAA becomes 19.5 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Burgess 74.7 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).
Smoky Burgess has a Hall Rating of 70, leaving him short of induction to the Hall of Stats.
