Major League Baseball Player. At 6'1", and 205lbs, he made his major league debut on September 10, 1955, playing the position of catcher. He played for the Chicago White Sox in 1953 originally as an amateur free agent, and then again with the Chicago White Sox from 1955 to 1960, the Washington Senators in 1960, and the Minnesota Twins from 1961 to 1967. He was considered one of baseball's best catchers of the 1960s, and he was an All-Star in 1962, 1963, 1965 and 1966. In 1967 Battey retired from the majors, and in the year 2000 he was chosen as the catcher on the Minnesota Twins' all-time 40th Anniversary Team. (bio by: K)
