|About the stats|
Over the course of his career, Willie McCovey made 9,692 plate appearances. McCovey was worth 64.5 Wins Above Replacement and 30.3 Wins Above Average.
After adjusting for length of schedule, catchers, and relief pitchers, the 64.5 WAR becomes 64.6 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 30.3 WAA becomes 38.8 adjWAA.
Then, the adjWAR and adjWAA are combined, but with extra weighting given to adjWAA. This gives McCovey 134.4 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).
Willie McCovey has a Hall Rating of 126, making him a member of the Hall of Stats.
