Game 119 | November 21, 1963
The catcher in the Minnesota Twins' first game in 1961, Battey held that position through the end of the 1967 season. He won three Gold Gloves as the best fielding catcher in the American League, and was named an AL All-Star four times. Until the arrival of Joe Mauer, Battey was considered by most to be the best catcher in Twins history.
