Female in a Man's World
Fletcher emerged as a minority in a largely male-dominated business and began getting noticed for her mix of business prowess and compassion. A 2007 Sports Illustrated article described Fletcher changing the diaper of then-Chicago Cubs catcher Michael Barrett's daughter while discussing his contract. Rather than viewing her gender as a disadvantage, Fletcher has been quoted stating that she uses her unique position as a strength when negotiating contracts and dealing with players, coaches and front office staffs.
