They say that in baseball and in life, "all the important things happen at home." That's especially true for famous athletes of the sport, such as Cal Ripken Jr., whose Reisterstown, Maryland, estate this spring.
The 21,890-square-foot mansion owned by the Major League Baseball player is situated on 24.38 acres—and starting Saturday, May 12 at 11 a.m. EST., it will go to the highest bidder.
reports that 13301 Dover Rd. property was on the market for a year, first priced at $12 million in September 2016 and then $9.75 million in April 2017. In August, the listing was removed. Now, is handling the on-site sale, which is without reserve (meaning no minimum price is required).
There appears to be a pond and—naturally—a baseball diamond on the property. Would you expect any less of the Orioles legend?
Plus, there's a pool and a multi-car attached garage.
Inside, we spy cozy family rooms and a large kitchen and dining room.
Just look at that cozy stone fireplace.
This eating nook would work well for breakfast...
...while a more formal dining room is ideal for entertaining.
Speaking of entertaining, guests can gather around this bar.
There are six bedrooms and 15 bathrooms (10 full, five half) in total.
... not to mention a gym and locker area.
Apparently baseball's not the only sport the owner enjoys. His house even has an indoor basketball court.
Even athletes like to kick back and relax with a great movie. This home theater is pretty impressive.
