William "Bill" Hall (born December 28, 1979 in Nettleton, Mississippi) is a Major League Baseball third baseman for the Milwaukee Brewers.
In the 2005 season, Hall helped the Brewers to their first .500 season since 1992. Splitting time between third base, shortstop, and second base, Hall had a batting average of .291 with 17 home runs and 62 RBI.
The following season, Hall played behind newly acquired third baseman Corey Koskie, shortstop J. J. Hardy, and second baseman Rickie Weeks. On May 17, 2006, Hall became the Brewers' starting shortstop after Hardy injured his ankle.
On Mothers Day 2006, with the Brewers playing the New York Mets, Hall hit a walk-off home run in the 10th inning. He hit the home run using a special Mother's day pink bat with his mother, Vergie Hall, in attendance. After the game he dedicated the home run to her. When the bat was later auctioned to raise money for breast cancer research, Brewers owner Mark Attanasio purchased the bat and gave it to Hall's mother. The final bid on the bat was over $25,000, the third-highest total ever paid for an auction item on mlb.com.
In November 2006, Hall represented Major League Baseball in the Japan All-Star Series.
