Mansion fit for baseball: MVP retired player sells $5.5 million estate

 It's a house that baseball built, a home fit for a baseball fan.

Daimon Easley spent 17 years in Major League Baseball, including time with the Detroit Tigers, and the Arizona Diamondbacks. His two are Glendale, Arizona estate is the ultimate tribute to the great american pasttime, with an indoor batting cage, miniature baseball field, even bathroom tiles that form baseball diamonds.

If the house of your dreams looks something like "Field of Dreams," this 15,000 square foot mansion is a grand slam.

"Lots of memorabilia throughout, signed baseballs, you got a Cal Ripkin Junior, Randolph, signed bats from Willy Tramal," said realtor Vincent Clark.

Former Diamondbacks infielder Easley built the home for his family in 2006. The Tuscan style home features six bedrooms, and 8 1/2 bathrooms, with a boy's wing perfect for the pee-wee pitcher.

"This is an interactive scoreboard, any little boy growing up playing little league will change some of these names to their own name, or their favorite players names as well," he said.

A house this big demands an equally learg closet, and here in the master suite the closet is over 800 square feet, with room for all those ladie shoes and dresses, as well as a room for the guys clothing as well.

Below the bedrooms, kitchen, and living room are two wings dedicated to big league entertaining. An indoor batting cage at one end, and a gameroom with a personal movie theater at the other.

"A high quality HD video projector, audio in here is really hard to beat, notice the stage, room for plenty of talent shows," said Clark.

If you eat too much popcorn watching Bull Durham there's a gym down the hall with a trampoline, basketball court, and wiffle ball field just outside.

Easley's estate is listed at $5.5 million, but if you really want to knock it out of the park you can make an offer for all the memorabilia too.

Clark says that Easley hosted many parties and events at the home, including a wedding in his backyard. He couldn't tell us who got married there, but sufficed to say, there have been some celebrity sightings at the home over the years.
