TEMPE, Ariz. — No wonder Cecil Fielder doesn't pick up a bat or ball during the off-season. With a winter home like his, who has time for baseball?
Fielder's 19,500-square-foot, 50-room mansion in Melbourne, Fla., includes full basketball and tennis courts, a theater with an 11-foot screen and movie-house quality sound system, a professional weight room with massage and steam rooms and a sauna, and an 8,000-bottle circular wine cellar.
His two kids can play in a media center, an arts-and-crafts room, a game room or a model train room. There are outdoor and indoor playscapes, an arcade and a swimming pool.
The home has nine fireplaces, including two in the master bedroom suite, a huge, professional kitchen equipped with two commercial-grade stoves, and a 40-foot foyer with a circular staircase and indoor pond. There's even a 4,500- square-foot guest house.
