At 162 games in length, the MLB season is long and arduous but rich in opportunity to make big money. A fair share of that cash gets passed on to the players who use it to buy some extravagant mansions. The brighter the star and the better the player means more money and bigger mansions. With no salary cap, the MLB is filled with some of the richest athlete contracts in the world. From beach front properties to Beverly Hills estates, here are the top-10 MLB stars mansions.
Biggest And Most Impressive MLB Player Homes
Big Contracts, Big Houses And Big Betting
Player contracts in the MLB are some of the most ridiculous in the sporting world. Teams with deep pockets such as the Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees hand out 9-figure contracts without much thought. Some players are worth the money, but when the contract lasts for a decade or longer – the last few years the team is often overpaying more a player past their prime. The richest contract in MLB history was handed in 2015 by the Miami Marlins to Giancarlo Stanton – a staggering deal worth $325,000,000 over 13 years. There are rumours and murmurs of a potential $400,000,000 contract coming up in a few years, but for now, that last deal sits atop the list.
When players invest big money in mansions close to the team they play for, there is a sense they are happy in their situation and want to remain a member of that team for the long term. This can impact a team’s short and long-term strategy, as they have a star player who is happy with their team, but likely wants to see that team in contention for the MLB playoffs and World Series throughout their tenure on that team. Outside of that, a players mansion does not have any true impact on MLB betting or odds.
