Gatti deserves spotlight

As another of the women Rosa Gatti took under her wing, I really appreciated your story on her [“Champions: Rosa Gatti,” Feb. 25-March 3 issue]. She does not like to be in the spotlight, but boy does she deserve it. The changes she has seen, and helped create, are particularly impressive since many others benefited from her breakthroughs.

It truly was a different time when she started. I got into the business a few years after Rosa — graduated in 1978, got a master’s in sports administration in 1979, and was the first woman PR person to travel to all games with an MLB team. And Rosa, along with ESPN’s Gayle Gardner, really were the first women to lend me unconditional support.

Cheers to you for doing her story justice.
