Yes you heard me right. Here's the link and story.
In Del Mar, Calif., Major League Baseball player Steve Finley and his wife, interior designer Amy Finley, have put their beachfront house on the market, with an asking price of $21.5 million, about 14 times what they paid in 1995.
The center fielder has played for several teams, but didn't play in the majors this season.
In 1995, the Finleys paid $1.54 million for the house, which is within walking distance of town, and have done some remodeling. Built in 1968, the 2,500-square-foot house has six bedrooms and three bathrooms on a 33-by-120-foot lot, according to the listing. In peak season, it has rented for as much as $18,000 per week, according to their listing agent.
Finley, 43 years old, and his wife own a development firm and have built and sold a handful of properties in the San Diego area. Earlier this year in Rancho Santa Fe, the couple sold a large contemporary-style house on 7.5 acres for $12.5 million, on property they'd bought about seven years earlier for $1.7 million, according to the listing agent.
