Travis Hafner, the retired slugger who made a name for himself by slamming home runs for the Cleveland Indians, has put his massive home in Avon Lake, OH, on the market for $5.75 million.

Built in 2008, the Colonial-style home sits right by Lake Erie and is brimming with character throughout its 17,817 square feet. Pronk's place has a jungle-themed playroom, with a faux tree and painted wallpaper; a stylish, modern kitchen; and an artsy and jazzy full bar among other sleek, modern touches. Agent Patti Seghi has the listing.

The six-bedroom house has two master bedrooms, and each bedroom comes with a walk-in closet. An elevator provides access to the home's four floors. Out back is a colorful infinity pool and lounge area with a tabletop fireplace.

The home appears to have been a custom build -- Hafner bought the property for $821,800 in 2008 -- and he used the company "Ron Burgendy LTD" for the purchase. It's not the correct spelling of the "Anchorman" character's name, but perhaps "Ron Burgundy LTD" was already taken?
