Hall of Fame Career Standards Test by Bill James

Hall of Fame Career Standards TestThese are metrics designed by Bill James to measure how likely a player is to get into the HOF, and not necessarily how good they were. This test gives a score of 50 for an average Hall of Famer, with 100 as the max. It is used to measure the overall quality of a player's career.  The metric uses a one-point addition scale based on career cumulative and rate stats. The all-time leader in batting points is Babe Ruth at 78 and Christy Mathewson leads in pitching points at 84.
