This test awards points to players based on career numbers. It gives a score of 50 for an average Hall of Famer, with 100 as the intended max. It is used to measure the overall quality of a player's career as opposed to singular brilliance (peak value).

The Black and Gray Ink Scores award points to player based on leaderboard finishes. Black Ink points are awarded for leading the league in a category, while Gray Ink points are awarded for each top 10 finish. Points are awarded as follows:

**Batting Statistics**

- 4 pts - HR, RBI, AVG
- 3 pts - R, H, SLG
- 2 pts - 2B, BB, SB
- 1 pt - G, AB, 3B

**Pitching Statistics**

- 4 pts - W, ERA, K
- 3 pts - IP, W/L Pct, SV
- 2 pts - CG, BB/9, H/9
- 1 pt - G, GS, SHO

Similarity Scores are designed to compare players based on their statistical accomplishments. Players are compared by starting with a score of 1000, and then subtracting based on statistical differences.

**Batters** (minimum 500 PA)

- One point for each difference of 20 games played
- One point for each difference of 75 at bats
- One point for each difference of 10 runs scored
- One point for each difference of 15 hits
- One point for each difference of 5 doubles
- One point for each difference of 4 triples
- One point for each difference of 2 home runs
- One point for each difference of 10 RBI
- One point for each difference of 25 walks
- One point for each difference of 150 strikeouts
- One point for each difference of 20 stolen bases
- One point for each difference of .001 in batting average
- One point for each difference of .002 in slugging percentage

In addition, batters are further differentiated by position. Each position has a value, and twelve times the difference between the two player's positions is subtracted as well. Position values are as follows:

- 20 - Catcher
- 14 - Shortstop
- 11 - Second Base
- 7 - Third Base
- 5 - Center Field
- 4 - Right Field
- 3 - Left Field
- 1 - First Base
- 0 - Designated Hitter

**Pitchers** (minimum 100 IP)

- One point for each difference of 1 win
- One point for each difference of 2 losses
- One point for each difference of .002 in winning percentage (max 100 points)
- One point for each difference of .02 in ERA (max 100 points)
- One point for each difference of 10 games pitched
- One point for each difference of 20 games started
- One point for each difference of 20 complete games
- One point for each difference of 50 innings pitched
- One point for each difference of 50 hits allowed
- One point for each difference of 30 strikeouts
- One point for each difference of 10 walks
- One point for each difference of 5 shutouts
- One point for each difference of 3 saves

In addition, pitchers are assigned a role. A relief pitcher is determined as having more relief appearances than starts and a maximum of 4 innings per appearance.

- Subtract 10 points if the pitchers are starters and threw with different hands
- Subtract 25 points if the pitchers are relievers and threw with different hands
- For relievers, halve the winning percentage penalty and allow it to go up to 1.5 times the wins and losses penalty

Win Shares attempt to assign players a single value to represent their contribution to their team's success over the course of a season. Win shares are divided up between batting, pitching, and defensive contributions, and each win share represents 1/3 of a team win. For more information on how win shares are calculated, see the book 'Win Shares', by Bill James. Some accomodation has been made in the calculation of Win Shares in StatsLab where OOTP does not provide sufficient detail, however, these are relatively minor.

Some graphs in StatsLab have added features that allow you to zoom in or hover over a data point to get the exact value. If the cursor changes to a large '+' sign, then clicking and dragging around an area will (almost always) allow you to zoom in on a section of the plot. Doubleclicking will return the graph to the default view.
