Joseph V. Battin (November 1, 1851 December 10, 1937) was a 19th century Major League Baseball player. Battin was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

He played major league baseball from 1871 to 1884 and then returned for one season in 1890, after several years in various minor leagues. Battin primarily played third base, although he occasionally filled in at other roles as well. His best year was in 1876 for the St. Louis Brown Stockings, when he batted .300 and scored 34 runs. In 1936 the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum listed Battin on the ballot. He received one vote.

Battin died at the age of 86 in Akron, Ohio, where he was buried at the Glendale Cemetery.
