Fletcher struck out 17 for Yucca Valley High School, throwing a five-hitter in the win. He even added four RBI at the plate, The Sun wrote.
Fletcher went on from Yucca Valley to play in college and in the pros. His pro career, however, ended up being brief. He played in just three professional games.
Fletcher's pro career began and ended in 1990, having been taken by the Blue Jays the year before in the 62nd round of the draft out of Mount San Jacinto College.
The Royals first selected Fletcher out of high school, taking Fletcher in the 45th round.
At Yucca Valley, Fletcher hit a home run in an April 198 game. Fletcher picked up two RBI in another May 1988 contest.
Fletcher then went on to Mount San Jacinto and to the Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays sent him to rookie Medicine Hat. He got into his three games, each in relief. He gave up six earned runs in 3.2 innings of work, marking the extent of his brief career.
