Victorian Teal Cup representative in 1980 and winner of the Morrish Medal for best player in the 1981 Under 19's competition, Battiston debuted in the first round of the next season and kicked 25 goals for the season after playing every game.
Out of favour and injury prone in 1983 and 1984 he played just 12 and seven games respectively over the two seasons, finishing as runner up in the Gardiner Medal for Reserve grade Best and Fairest in '84.
On the back of his excellent season in the 2's Battiston returned to once again play every match in 1985. He played the first 14 games of 1987 before missing the rest of the season, and the Demons charge into the finals.
