Personal life[edit]

Schleper is a Christian. Schleper has spoken about her faith saying, "Any time you get in the athletic environment, it’s challenging as a Christian. It’s easy to have an ‘it’s about me’ attitude. That’s why it’s important to be around other Christians who can lift you up and pray for you. It’s good to stay connected, and that’s where I’ve seen those Bible studies at camps be so huge. God is opening the eyes of teammates who I would never have thought would come. He’s building it into something bigger and better."[6]

On January 27, 2017, Schleper married MLB outfielder Denard Span.
