Retired MLB pitcher Mark Mulder has decided to sell his family’s custom home in Scottsdale, AZ. He’s listed the impressive property for $2.2 million.
Mulder bought the home for $2,025,000 in 2003, while he was starring for the Oakland Athletics. (The A’s spring training home is in the Phoenix area.)
After holding on to the Scottsdale home for over a decade, he’s now ready to part with it. In 2015, he listed a different Arizona home, a couple of hours north in Flagstaff, for $1,435,000. Located on a golf course, that home wound up selling in April 2016 for $1,375,000.
The home he’s selling now sits on over an acre in the upscale North Scottsdale area. The 6,100 square feet include five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. Open, airy, and designed for entertaining, the property resembles a resort rather than a private residence.
There are oversize rooms with custom touches like built-ins and fireplaces. The grounds include a large pool, spa, kitchen, basketball court, and putting green.
There’s little doubt Mulder and his wife, Lindsey, and their three kids have had a lot of fun times in this house.
The putting green isn’t just for show. Since his retirement from baseball in 2010, Mulder has emerged as a premier golfer on the celebrity circuit, winning titles across the country.
The former ace pitcher qualified for the Safeway Open PGA Tour event in Napa, CA, in October, adding to a mounting list of his golf accolades and accomplishments.
Mulder won the 2019 Showcase Celebrity Golf Tournament in Coeur d’Alene, ID, where his wife graduated from Gonzaga Prep. He had a lot of positive things to say about the place.

“I love it. I love the atmosphere, the lake is amazing, exactly what my wife said it was,” Mulder told the Spokesman-Review about the area during the tournament.
But for now Mulder’s Twitter profile has his home listed in Arizona, meaning he must be trading out this home for another in the state. And now, someone new has the chance to purchase the sporty spot in Scottsdale owned by a world-class pitcher—and golfer.
