Former San Francisco Giants star catcher Buster Posey has quietly sold his Lafayette mansion for $9.28 million, cutting ties to a region he’s called home since he became a fixture with the team more than a decade ago.
The seven-time All-Star and three-time World Series champion spent his entire 12-year career with the Giants; he shocked the club and fans when he announced his retirement last year.
Posey, 34, sold the 6,038-square-foot six-bedroom, five-bathroom home off-market. It sits on almost an acre of landscaped grounds. He purchased it in 2013, after winning his second World Series title with the Giants, for $4.585 million.
The future Hall of Famer is moving back to his native Georgia. While the Giants will try their best to replace Posey’s phenomenal skills and leadership on the team, fans undoubtedly will miss his presence at the ballpark.
Thankfully, he’ll be back at Oracle Park on May 7 for Buster Posey Day.
