"Batter Up" is a single by the American rapper Nelly and the St. Lunatics, released on September 11, 2001. It was produced by Steve "Blast" Wills, taken from Nelly's 2000 album Country Grammar.

"Batter Up" is included as a bonus track on the Free City album and remixed on Da Derrty Versions. The song's hook and chorus allude to the theme song of the television sitcom The Jeffersons. The show's star, Sherman Hemsley, appears in the music video for "Batter Up", initially as a sports announcer and later dancing with members of St. Lunatics. It is the last single from Nelly's first studio album, and was released on the same day as the September 11 attacks. At the beginning of the music video to "Ride Wit Me", Nelly is shown to be listening to "Batter Up".
