Strikeout king Randy Johnson is in a bit of a funk when it comes to selling his enormous estate just outside of Scottsdale, AZ.
The Hall of Fame pitcher and Arizona Diamondbacks legend owns a 25,000-square-foot mansion in Paradise Valley that’s been languishing on the market since September 2014. Now the "The Big Unit" is ready to cut a big deal—he knocked an additional $3 million off the list price this week.
The seven-bedroom, 12-bathroom home hit the market for $25 million nearly four years ago. Then early last year, the fearsome hurler knocked $5 million off the price. And now, it can be yours for the relatively low price of $16.5 million.
OK, while it’s not exactly a low price, a total discount of $8.5 million is still substantial.
This house offers the sort of luxury wealthy buyers step up to the plate for. The Mediterranean-style home was built in 2006 and sits on 5 acres with mountain and city views. Amenities include a 1,800-square-foot fitness facility, home theater, music room, recording studio, tennis court, and pool. There’s also a two-bedroom guesthouse.

Every room in this over-the-top estate is lavish and designed on a grand scale. The dining room, den, and even the bedrooms seem larger than expected. But considering Johnson is 6-foot-10, it’s understandable the lanky lefty wanted plenty of room to stretch out.
Since his retirement from baseball in 2009, Johnson has pursued his passion for photography, specializing in snapping some of the most famous rock stars on the planet, including Elton John, Bono and U2, and hard-rocking Slayer.
Johnson was named the MVP of the 2001 World Series, which he won with the Arizona Diamondbacks. With 4,875 strikeouts over his 22-year career, he was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2015.
