There is no way to trigger a BAT file from JCL. However, it is possible to write a program that can be run from JCL that will shell out and run the BAT file. If you look in the Docs -> Reference->Library Routines->Alphabetic List and then look for X'91' Function'35' this is the call you can use to do it.

If you need more details let me know.
