Player Profile: Fletcher Bates

I have one card of Fletcher Bates, from 1998 SP Top Prospects. Great picture!

Playing career: Outfielder Fletcher Bates spent ten years in the minor leagues, playing in over a thousand games for five different organizations. For his career he hit .264 with 101 HR, 499 RBI and 123 SB.

Where he is now: The owner of Coastal Athletics in Wilmington, NC.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is seventh when you type Fletcher Ba, between Fletcher Bay Landing, a vacation rental in Puget Sound, WA, and Fletcher Bad Boys, referring to a character in a movie. There do not appear to be any other prominent Fletcher Bateses.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Jason Bates.
