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 Leagues. He had just finished his first season with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
