Homes of Baseball’s Top Players for 2012

- — For Major League Baseball players who face a 162-game regular season after spring training and before the October playoffs, "play ball" means at least six months away from the ol' family homestead — or sleek, waterfront mansion.

In anticipation of the 2012 season's official start, Forbes magazine recently listed Baseball's 10 Highest-Paid Players, which included Derek Jeter, Ichiro Suzuki, Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez. While three of these players are members of the high-payroll New York Yankees -- who put four on the top paid in baseball along with pitcher CC Sabathia -- the rest of the stars have been made millionaires courtesy of big-league teams around the country.

In honor of Opening Day — a baseball fan's annual rite of spring — we've gathered a list of homes of some of the game's biggest stars. These are the pricy digs that sluggers, pitchers and glovemen trade for a spring, summer and fall full of planes, trains and hotel rooms. Every player wants to end up in the World Series, but for these guys, the consolation prize of going home isn't too shabby.

Derek Jeter's Home -- Davis Island, Tampa, FL

Team: New York Yankees shortstop

Status: Owner-occupied

A time will come when New York Yankees' captain Derek Jeter will turn his last double play and his storied career will come to an end. That's when the future Hall of Famer will retire to his 30,875-square-foot mansion (photo above) located on Davis Island in Tampa Bay, FL.

According to the NY Times, the 7-bedroom, 9-bath mansion has a pool, two boat lifts, a drive-through portico and a pair of three-car garages on either end of the property. Jeter bought adjacent waterfront lots on Davis Islands' Bahama Circle in 2005 and 2006 for $7.7 million under the LLC "Kered" ("Derek" spelled backward).
