Battey won his first Gold Glove award in his first season as an everyday player for the Washington Senators in 1960. He would three-peat as the AL's Gold Glove catcher over the Twins' first two seasons in 1961-1962. In 1962, he appeared in both the mid-season and post-season All Star Games -- the first two of his five All Star appearances as a Twin.
Battey passed away in 2003 after a battle with cancer. The following year, he was posthumously inducted into the Twins Hall of Fame.
