The childhood home of New York Yankees star Derek Jeter is about to go on the market in a few weeks.
The asking price: $140,000.
“I love this house,” Kelly Mohamed told the New York Post. She and her husband, Mikael, bought the split-level house in Kalamazoo, Mich., for $110,000 in 2001.
“I loved it from the first time I walked through the door, but I want something warm now,” Kelly said. “We’re moving to Georgia.”
Jeter threw balls against the side of the house. He also developed his swing using a hitting machine in the garage.
The 2,000-square-foot house borders Kalamazoo Central High School’s baseball field where Jeter used to play as a kid.
Jeter is a 12-time All-Star and five-time World Series champion. He’s the Yankees’ all-time career leader in hits (3,088), games played (2,426), stolen bases (329) and at bats (9,868).
Jeter, who makes about $17 million a year, recently finished construction on this 31,000-square-foot waterfront mansion in Tampa. It features seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. The land alone cost $7 million.
Derek, you’ve come a long way since your days in Kalamazoo.
