In honor of Major League Baseball's Opening Week, let's take a look at some lavish homes of current and former MLB players.  These homes were once owed by these players or have recently been put on the market for sale.  It's clear to see that these players know how to reach deep into their pockets and enjoy the finer things in life.  Here's a peek at how the "one percent of the one percent" lives.

Andre Ethier

This lovely home in Gilbert, Arizona, has nearly 6,800 square feet of living space spread out across a vast lot.  Andre Ethier's former spring training home was recently taken off the market.

Reggie Sanders
The former major leaguer's Scottsdale estate recently sold for just a shade over $2 million.  The home has all the amenities of a first-class spa contained within a single family home.  The house, which has eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms, takes up a mere 8,000 square feet.

Adrian Beltre

While Adrian Beltre has left Southern California, his massive home is still on the market.  The hamlet of Bradbury in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains has the highest median home price of any town in the country.  While the median price is just a hair over $4 million, Beltre's mansion is currently listed at $19.5 million.  It has seven bedrooms and 14 baths in 16,600 square feet on a four-acre lot.

Derek Lowe
Formerly of the Atlanta Braves, Derek Lowe recently sold his 5,000-square foot home. It's modest by baseball player standards, as it's a mere five-bedroom and five-bathroom house.

Mike Hampton

Mike Hampton hasn't been in the majors for a quite a while, but he's still living large off of his record contract from over a decade ago.  This home was recently reduced in price to $3.95 million.  That's a relative bargain for the six-bedroom, seven-bath, 9,300-square foot Paradise Valley, Arizona, home.

Tim Lincecum

When Tim Lincecum got a two-year, $40 million extension he needed to have a home to match that paycheck.  As a result, his San Francisco condo was put on the market and sold for $1.7 million.  The Potrero Hill property has three bedrooms and three baths at just a shade under 3,000 square feet.

Carlos Beltran
Carlos Beltran's heart is still in New York City, but his home is actually located in Sands Point on Long Island.  Beltran's seven-bedroom, eight-bath home features a pool, home theater, karaoke bar and gym across more than 7,500 square feet of living space.  It's for sale at $5.8 million.

John Smoltz
When John Smoltz was ready to downsize, his Milton, Georgia, palatial estate/mansion/plantation was listed for sale for $7.2 million.  It features its own 18-hole golf course, eight-car garage and baseball diamond.  If only it had its own theme park.

David Wright
When David Wright wanted to sell his New York City penthouse, it could have been yours for only $6.25 million.  The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath, 4,100-square foot condo is located on East 21st Street. It has its own private elevator amongst other unbelievable features.

Pat Burrell

When Pat Burrell finally retired he opted to sell one of his many houses.  His Scottsdale compound sold for $3.7 million.  It has four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths in just under 7,000 square feet.

So as you head out to the local ballpark this spring and take in a Professional Baseball game, let your mind wonder and think about the type of home the players you are watching will be going home to and the end of their work day.
