Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive chart of every Orange Coast College alumni who played baseball at Orange Coast College AND made it to the Major League level.
"After a few drinks, outfielder Bill Voss started feeling a little too good. Voss , who was quite thin, challenged the much stronger Moss to an arm wrestle. Les declined Bill's offer, but Bill was persistent. Unfortunately, Moss agreed to wrestle Voss . It did not take long to pin Bill and in doing so broke one of Bill's fingers." - Author Howard Kellman in 61 Humorous and Inspiring Lessons I Learned from Baseball (AuthorHouse Publishing, 03/24/2010, Page 72)
