Carlos Beltran's Home -- Port Washington, NY

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder

Status: Listed for sale - $5.8 million

There was a time when the New York Mets made Carlos Beltran the highest-paid center fielder in MLB history at a $17 million-a-year salary. But the $119 million contract with the Mets is a thing of the past, and so is his life in New York. Beltran has moved onto St. Louis, where the reigning World Champs will look for this All-Star to fill the void left by the departure of Albert Pujols. A sure sign that Beltran won't be back to New York? He's listed his luxuriously comfortable Long Island home on the Port Washington real estate market for $5.8 million, hoping to attract a buyer to the desirable North Shore that's a convenient 25 miles from Manhattan. See more photos of Beltran's home.

Ichiro Suzuki's Home -- Issaquah, WA

Seattle Mariners outfielder Status: Sold in 2009

It figures that the greatest Japanese baseball player in Major League Baseball history would feel at home in the Pacific Coast city of Seattle. Or, across Lake Washington in the suburb of Issaquah. It's here where many of Seattle's pro athletes have found cool housing havens to suit their lifestyles. That's also true for Ichiro, the Zen-master hit-machine who resided in this hillside home before trading for a new one nearby. After listing this home for $1.750 million in early 2009, Ichiro accepted a sale price of $1.35 million and called it a day. As for his career? That continues to surprise. The Mariners' 11-year leadoff hitter who continually racked up 200-plus hit seasons has been dropped to the No. 3 spot for the start of the 2012 season, where the Mariners opened in Tokyo on March 28. Ichiro got the job done, going 4-for-5. See more photos of Ichiro's home.
