Gordon 'Red' Batty
Equipment Manager

Biography

A veteran in his area of expertise, Gordon “Red” Batty is in his 21st season as equipment manager of the Green Bay Packers.

Batty is responsible for properly outfitting players with the safest and most advanced equipment, as well as ordering and maintaining all of the team’s equipment and sideline apparel. Immediately prior to joining the Packers, he had spent 13 seasons (1981-93) in the same position with the then-Houston Oilers.

Long regarded as one of the best in the business, Batty was voted the NFL’s Equipment Manager of the Year by his peers in 2002 at their annual meeting.

A 55-year-old native of Montreal, Batty remarkably is in his 42nd season in the equipment field. He began his career in 1973 at age 14 as a ball boy for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. Six years later, he was elevated to the position of equipment manager for the Alouettes. During Batty’s tenure in Montreal, the Alouettes won two Grey Cups (1974 and ’77).

Batty subsequently joined the Oilers in June 1981, in the process becoming the NFL’s youngest equipment manager at age 22. He also purports to be the first native-born Canadian to garner both a Grey Cup and Super Bowl ring, and he now has two of each, the latter distinction earned when the Packers captured Super Bowls XXXI and XLV with Batty in charge of the team’s equipment. He also worked his fourth Pro Bowl following the 2012 season.

Upon being named to the Packers’ staff on Jan. 24, 1994, Batty became only the fifth person in club history to hold the title of equipment manager. Batty (pronounced BATT-ee) was born Nov. 18, 1958, in Montreal and has two children, a daughter, Chelsei, 23, and a son, Cameron, 18.

Since 1994, Batty has served as the equipment coordinator for what is now known as the NFL Players Rookie Premiere preseason event. Batty is given the duty of communicating with each rookie invitee’s team equipment manager to secure equipment and jerseys utilized for trading-card photo shoots.

A devout hockey fan, Batty has also worked several NHL events over the years, including the Wayne Gretzky Fantasy Camp in 2011 and 2012. He continues to play hockey himself.
