Homes for the 2012 MLB Playoffs

Ah, playoff baseball. A crisp in the night air and you break out your team hoodie or blanket as you head to the ballpark excited with anticipation for what the evening may hold. Or, as most of us will do, we’ll settle into our favorite seat on the couch with bag of chips in hand and enjoy the fall classic from the comfort of our homes.

Ah, playoff baseball. A crisp in the night air and you break out your team hoodie or blanket as you head to the ballpark excited with anticipation for what the evening may hold. Or, as most of us will do, we’ll settle into our favorite seat on the couch with bag of chips in hand and enjoy the fall classic from the comfort of our homes.

I’ve mentioned before how home and baseball are intertwined in both their history and metaphors, but with the playoffs now in full swing we wanted to take a look at what homes might be a good fit for those prepping for the playoff race.

Turns out we found 17 different homes on coldwellbanker.com that feature a batting cage either inside the home or in the backyard. How awesome would an indoor batting cage be for your future All Star? Forget the kids, how awesome would it be for the adults?

I’m not sure if Robinson Cano, Joey Votto or Matt Holliday even have one in their home. Speaking of Matt Holliday of the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals, he might want to check out this batting cage home in Frontenac, MO which isn’t too far from St. Louis. In addition to a batting cage, the home has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a game room and space for him to put a trophy room together in case the Cards repeat.

Baseball is truly our national pastime and you can see that in the fact that of the 17 different homes with batting cages they are located in 13 different states. While your favorite team may not be in the playoffs, I’m sure you’ll find yourself checking the scores this October and during those commercial breaks head on over to coldwellbanker.com to see the batting cage homes and search for whatever baseball-inspired addition you’re dreaming about using our keyword search.
