William Francis "Bill" Zinser (January 6, 1920, Cincinnati – March 16, 2001 in Cincinnati, aged 81) was a professional baseball pitcher. He appeared two Major League Baseball games for the Washington Senators in 1944. He was later a scout for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Zinser had a very short major league career, lasting only two games in 1944. He is most known for scouting future Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax while he pitched for the University of Cincinnati in 1954. His scouting report, which said that Koufax had an incredible arm, was lost in the Dodgers' front office until several other teams had given Koufax a tryout.
