    Ever wondered how MLB pro players live during their season’s spring training months? With baseball season swinging into full gear last week, we decided to check out the hottest spring training home in scorching Scottsdale, Arizona that former San Francisco Giant Pat Burrell is currently trying to offload.

    Located just 22 miles from the San Francisco Giants’ spring training camp, this 6,931 square foot, 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom bachelor pad hit the market in early February, possibly confirming rumors of “Pat the Bat’s” recent retirement. Listed at $3.695 million, this estate is one of the swankiest MLB pads available in the area. The contemporary home features glass walls and an open design, allowing for stunning views of Estancia Golf Course. The first floor boasts a state-of-the art kitchen, grand living and dining room with fireplace, full bar, and private living quarters. An indoor fitness center and billiards room can also be found on the spacious first floor. An elevator and elegant winding staircase lead to the second floor theater and game room. The outside space features beautifully landscaped grounds with a patio leading to the pool and Jacuzzi.

     According to the listing, this contemporary masterpiece only housed Burrell for two months out of the year allowing the home to “look and show like new.” One can only imagine how many memories were created in those two short months. If only walls could talk!

      NFL Hall of Famer Joe Montana is giving all  San Francisco 49er fans a special playoff treat this year: an extra huge price cut off his listed Northern California retreat, Villa Montana. According to Yahoo! Sports, Montana has taken a grand total of $14M off, that’s a 31% discount, and relisted the Calistoga getaway home for $35 million.

      Originally listed back in 2009 for $49 million, this home is not limited to just 49er fans. Anyone who enjoys basking in California’s wine country sun, takes pleasure in playing bocce ball in the comfort of their home, and/or fancies riding beautiful horses can also live or vacation in this three bedroom, 3/5 bathroom estate.

      Nearly 10,000 square feet and 500 acres of beautiful Calistoga land makes this home to die for. Complete with an olive farm, full bocce ball and basketball court, an equestrian stable, an exquisite pool and spa, and breathtaking mountain views, you won’t have a problem turning the TV off in this home. (Unless, of course it’s the NFL champion playoff games.)

      The home also includes a private pond, shooting range and guest house.

His lady love Nicole Murphy was married to famous comedian Eddie Murphy from 1993-2006 and has five children with her ex. Shortly after their 2009 engagement Strahan and Murphy purchased the home for $5 million and are now looking to sell and potentially make a $1.95 million profit.

        Located in an exclusively gated Brentwood community, the six bedroom, eight bathroom Mediterranean estate is masterfully designed with elegant contemporary appeal from head to toe. Dark wooden floors line the majority of all 9,200 square feet and add a custom finish to the textured walls, crown moldings and warm desert shades. The extraordinary chef’s kitchen features all Viking stainless steel appliances and floating center island. The master suite includes a separate sitting area, fireplace, balcony steam/dual showers and large walk-in closets. In addition to the grand scale living and family room spaces, the estate boasts two powder rooms, two separate dens, a wet bar, a theater room and an elevator.
