$12.5 MILLION: Adam Jones buys Cal Ripken’s estate. https://t.co/l7KjsUySdm
From one Orioles legend to the current face of the franchise.
TMZ Sports reported that the house features six bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, a theater, an indoor basketball court, a gym and a pool. Not only that, but the property features a baseball field and a fishing pond.
Fans may not want to read too much into this transaction in regard to the center fielder’s future in Baltimore. CBS Baltimore reported that Jones is a real-estate enthusiast who buys and sells property in different cities.
As Spotrac notes, Jones has made nearly $100 million in his career, with the help of the then-largest contract ($86.5 million) in Orioles history in 2012.
