Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 4, 1947
Death: Sep. 7, 1969

Bill Seinsoth was a first baseman who is most notable for winning the 1968 College World Series Most Outstanding Player award while a junior at University of Southern California. He is one of only seven players from the USC to win that award. Also an All-American, he had a career .337 batting average in college. He was drafted five times, but he played only one year professionally, never reaching the majors. Bill was involved in a single motor vehicle accident near the town of Calico while traveling to Las Vegas to see his best friend, O.J. Simpson, play a football game. He died the next day at Harbor General Hospital in Torrance, California.

-------------------------
Bill did make it to the Major League. He had just finished his first season with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
