Major League Baseball Player. For five seasons (1991 to 1994 and 1996), he played at the third base and shortstop positions with the Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants. Born Kimothy Emil Batiste, he attended St. Amant High School in Louisiana, prior to being signed during the third round of the 1987 Baseball Amateur Draft. He made his Major League debut on September 10, 1991 and played in ten games that season. He experienced a National League Pennant-winning season in 1993 with the Phillies. Batiste will be remembered for making a fielding error which resulted in the Atlanta Braves forcing extra innings in game one of the 1993 National League Championship Series. He went on to redeem himself when he produced the game winning RBI in the tenth inning of that contest. He appeared in three games against the Toronto Blue Jays during the 1993 World Series but did not record any plate appearances. In 251 career regular season games, he compiled 154 hits with a .234 lifetime batting average. He died from kidney issues.
