Once held the largest contract in the history of sports, and ultimately went on to have an underwhelming career
9,000 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, batting cage, basketball court
MLB pitcher Mike Hampton is hoping a buyer will step up to the plate and take his rocking Paradise Valley, Arizona home off his hands. First reported by the Business Insider, Hampton is hoping for a speedy sale of his 6-bedroom, 7-bathroom home. Listed for a cool $4,000,000, the 9,000 square-foot home is the unique combination of chic and playful.
The home features a resort-like pool and water slide, batting cage, basketball court and the ultimate Man Cave that features a card table, full bar, state-of-the-art electronics, and sports memorabilia that appears to rival even the most serious collector. While Hampton spent his whole career in professional baseball, the jerseys on the walls suggest he’s quite the football buff.
The outdoor living area features big screen TVs and couches for relaxing in the warm Arizona heat. Other home amenities include a large office, wine cellar and indoor home gym.
When Hampton signed with Colorado Rockies in 2000, his $121,000,000 contract was the largest in sports history. Plagued with frequent injuries and disappointing seasons, Hampton is now retired.

Star third baseman for the NY Mets
4,000 square-feet, 3 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms
New York Mets third baseman David Wright has been looking to turn a nice profit on the sale of his 4,000 square-foot, 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom Flatiron bachelor pad/penthouse - yet has had no luck. Originally listed for $7,850,000, Wright would have made a decent profit on the $6,100,000 he paid for the place in 2006. Except no buyer has stepped up to the plate, forcing Wright to go down the road of price reductions. To make matters worse, we hear rumblings that the current list price of $6,950,000 is still too high for this modern penthouse. Keep an eye on this property, sports fans. It might soon become a whole lot less expensive.
Wright has since moved on to a $12,000-a-month rental at Lucida building on the Upper East Side while he awaits a buyer for the penthouse.
The penthouse listing describes Wright’s building, The Infinity Flats, as “the premier loft condominium in the Flatiron District.” Infinity Flats offers a virtual doorman and key-lock elevators in the heart of one of downtown NY’s most vibrant and historic neighborhoods.
Wright’s full-floor bachelor pad loft offers dramatic and expansive living space, exquisite finishes, and total privacy. The great room is defined by a salt-water aquarium and a glass and stone gas fireplace. The floor-through layout offers 4-bedrooms including an over sized master suite, a large media room featuring a wall of 5 flat-screen TVs, 4.5 stunning bathrooms, plus a home office with bathroom en suite. The eat-in kitchen features professional appliances, storage and a marble island with wine cooler, as well as space for a full-sized dining table. One flight upstairs, the roof deck is fully equipped with enclosed hot tub, sound system, and gas grill.
