Earl Battey (January 5, 1935 - November 15, 2003) was an American catcher in Major League Baseball for the Chicago White Sox (1955-59), Washington Senators (1960) and Minnesota Twins (1961-67).
Born in Los Angeles, California, Battey was an All-Star in 1962, 1963, 1965, and 1966, and won the Gold Glove Award in 1960-1962.
Battey was part of a wonderful charity program sponsored by Con Edison of NY whereby children were given free bleacher tickets to New York Yankee games. Battey talked baseball and was a "big brother" to all the kids who were lucky enough to benefit from the program.
He died of cancer at the age of 68 in Ocala, Florida.
