Retired Texas Rangers third-base ace Adrián Beltré has put his French-inspired Dallas mansion in the real estate batter’s box for nearly $3.4 million.
The future Hall of Famer — who spent 21 seasons in the big leagues, including his final eight with the Rangers — retired from baseball in 2018 and now is retiring his Preston Hollow estate. The asking price is $3.38 million; he bought the 2008-built home for close to $3 million.
The 39-year-old Beltré, a native of the Dominican Republic, became a Rangers fan favorite over the years. He shares the stately mansion with his wife, Sandra, and their three children — Cassandra, Adrián Jr., and Camila.
The 8,204-square-foot gated estate — at 4311 Brookview Dr. — features five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and two half-bathrooms on a three-quarters-of-an-acre lot. Other amenities include:
- Three-car garage
- Hand-scraped hardwood floors
- Six-burner gas stove and grill in kitchen
- Formal study
- Wine cellar
- Eight-seat media room
- Game room with kitchenette
- Outdoor living area with grill, pool and retractable video screens
“The home is a winner — just like its famous owner,” Realtor.com says.
Lillie Young of Allie Beth Allman & Associates has the listing.
Beltré no doubt has fond memories associated with his Dallas mansion, such as a 2017 bash where DJ Sebastian was spinning the tunes. But in the summer of 2015, someone burglarized the home, swiping Beltré’s 2011 American League Championship ring and four tickets to his suite at the Rangers’ home, Globe Life Park.
While Beltré is now out of the baseball spotlight, he’s hardly been out of sight.
Plano-based retailer J.C. Penney recently aired a feel-good holiday commercial in which a spokeswoman randomly interviews shoppers. Little did the spokeswoman — or J.C. Penney, for that matter — know that she was in the presence of a baseball great and his family.
The ad contains no on-air acknowledgment that the Adrián Beltré is one of the featured shoppers. And the Beltrés didn’t tip off the crew members who were shooting the spot.
The Rangers announced January 25 that they are retiring his No. 29 jersey.
