|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Jimmy Knowles made 1,481 plate appearances. Knowles was worth 4.0 Wins Above Replacement and -0.3 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 4.0 WAR becomes 4.5 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 -0.3 WAA becomes 2.8 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives Knowles 9.5 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).
Jimmy Knowles has a Hall Rating of 9, leaving him nowhere close to induction to the Hall of Stats.
