Brian Walton's news and commentary on the St. Louis Cardinals (TM) and their minor league system

Molina’s Mansions

Yadier Molina is a wealthy man, in the midst of a five-year, $75 million contract to be the catcher of the St. Louis Cardinals. It only makes sense that he and his family enjoy the fruits of his labor, including their residences.

Within six months of signing his current deal in 2012, Molina purchased a mansion and four-acre property in the Island Cove section of Jupiter, Florida for $7.15 million (above). It features six bedrooms, 8 1/2 bathrooms, a lit tennis court, movie theater, 300 feet of waterfront and more. Of course, Jupiter is the spring training home of the Cardinals.

Until 2015, the St. Louis base for the Puerto Rican native was located in Caseyville, Illinois (above).  Located adjacent to the first fairway of a golf club, the six bedroom, 6,442-square-foot home has many high-end features including a theater room, six-car garage and pool. In April, announced that Molina was selling that home for $1.5 million.

His new digs (above) are located in Creve Coeur. The 9,039-square-foot, six-bedroom home has seven full bathrooms and two half bathrooms. It sits on 1.08 acres on a gated street and includes an in-ground pool, private batting cages (below) and hot tub. Its’ purchase price was $2.23 million.

Not bad, eh?
