MATT BATTSSigned 3x5 color picture of him in Red Sox uniform, on a heavy card Illustration signed: "Matt Batts". Color, 3¼x5 heavy card. Matt Batts (b. 1921) was signed by the Boston Red Sox in 1942, but then served in the Army Air Force as a crew chief through 1945. He spent 10 years in the Major Leagues, the first five with Boston (1947-1951), and then with the Browns, Tigers, White Sox and Reds through 1956. A good singles hitter and defensive catcher, he played a backup role most of his career, although he was Detroit's starting catcher in 1953. Batts later ran a successful printing business in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Batts was a personal friend of Ted Williams; the two went on fishing trips together. When New York Times columnist and author David Halberstam met Clinton campaign manager and Baton Rouge native James Carville for the first time, their conversation focused not on politics, but on their mutual admiration for Matt Batts. Fine condition.
