Probably the alternator, assuming the battery and all the connections are OK. That light indicates a problem in the charging system, not necessarily limited to the battery. :)

The car was in storage for winter and I had forgotten to remove the battery so when I to it out of hibernation I put a new battery in so over winter the alternator would be shot . That's sucks !!!

It may not be the alternator but that would be a good place to start (as well as the drive belt for the alternator.) :)
