DULUTH -- If you're in the market for an upscale home that features an indoor basketball court, double waterfall, putting green, elevator and batting cage, Andruw Jones' pad is available.

The former Atlanta Braves center fielder has listed the home on Grey Moss Pass in Duluth for $4.99 million on the Harry Norman Realtors' website. The home features 12 full bathrooms, three half baths and nine bedrooms, including three master suites on the main floor.

The home, which was built in 2002, also includes a pool and spa, indoor resistance pool, sauna, steam shower, indoor hot tub, outdoor kitchen, two indoor kitchens and three laundry rooms.

The listing comes less than three months after Jones' wife filed for divorce following a domestic incident late last year.

Jones' wife filed for divorce Dec. 31 in a superior court complaint that also included a mutual restraining order and an order for a parenting seminar.

Jones was arrested on Christmas Day on a battery charge after a police report said Jones, 35, drank excessively during a Christmas Eve party at his family's home in Sugarloaf Country Club.

Jones spent the 1996 through 2007 seasons as the Braves' center fielder. Most recently, he was a backup outfielder for the New York Yankees the last two seasons.

He has since signed a one-year contract with Japan's Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles.

This is a sad story. It seems it is always just about the money.

That sounds like a luxury boutique hotel, not a private home. I agree with kevin, too much money seems to always lead to trouble.

Andruw grew up poor on the island of Curacau. He was not mentally equipped to handle fame and wealth. One day before long he will no longer have the physical ability to play professionally, and he will have wasted a real opportunity. This sad story we hear all too often.

This is typical of many professional athletes after the glory days are gone. Everything starts to fall apart. Unfortunately the hangers on keep demanding the same. The Rags to Riches comes full circle and they are back to where they started. Live like a King for 10 years, instead of living like a Price for Life.

Sugarloaf CC is notorius. If I was wealthy I would not pick to live there. Bad Karma.
