MLB All-Star Jermaine Dye Cuts Price on Poway Mansion

Former World Series MVP Jermaine Dye has taken a called first strike in his attempt to sell his home in Poway, CA, about 30 minutes northeast of San Diego.

Originally listed for $4.2 million in August, the asking price for the 9,214-square-foot home was cut to $3.99 million last week.

Dye, who won his postseason Most Valuable Player award while with the Chicago White Sox in 2005, bought the home for $3.3 million in 2012 from Cleveland Cavaliers guard Mo Williams.

The six-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion sits on 4.13 acres in a gated community known as The Heritage. It features a tropical pool with slide, waterfalls, and an elevated hot tub.

Twenty-foot glass doors in the family room open to a large loggia poolside, creating the type of indoor-outdoor living the Golden State is known for. The Spanish-style home also has a theater room, game room, 1,000-bottle wine room, chef's kitchen, outdoor basketball court, and sunken living and dining rooms. Javin Hope is the listing agent.

Dye retired in 2011 with 325 home runs and 1,072 runs batted in during his 14-year career. But rather than swinging for the fences, he'd be content just to get on base with a sale.
