Matt Batts' obit

Recommended Posts

I just tripped upon this today. Batts wasn't with the Tigers for long, but I know of him reasonably well because I once replayed the 1952 Detroit Tigers' season to see how bad the team really was. Batts wasn't very good, but you have to love the name for a baseball player.

Here are his stats:

The specific reason I knew about it was a Memorial thread run by a baseball sports gamer. He plays a game in honor of ballplayers who have died recently. He has all sorts of players from those who never played in the Major Leagues, to Women's Professional Baseball League players to just about anything you can imagine. Fittingly, Batts went hitless in his memorial game. He replayed one of Virgil Trucks' no-nos which Batts caught.
