Kimothy Emil Batiste (born March 15, 1968 in New Orleans, Louisiana) is a former Major League Baseball player for the Philadelphia Phillies (1991–1994) and San Francisco Giants (1996), both of the National League. He was drafted in the third round of the 1987 amateur draft by the Phillies. His major league debut came in 1991 with the Phillies. He was a key component of the Phillies 1993 National League Championship Series victory, delivering a game-winning RBI hit in the 10th inning of Game 1, though it was his error in the 9th inning that allowed the Braves to tie the game and force extra innings.

Batiste played four seasons with the Phillies as a backup shortstop and third baseman, and was released on May 15, 1995. On June 2, he was signed as a free agent by the Baltimore Orioles. He did not play at the major league level for the Orioles, and was drafted by the Giants from the Orioles in the 1995 Rule 5 Draft on December 4, 1995. He played one year with the Giants before being released on October 1, 1996. Batiste went on to play in the independent Atlantic League, batting .233 in 12 games in 2003 for the Atlantic City Surf in his final professional season.

Batiste has retired from baseball and currently resides in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
