Retired MLB pitcher Kenny Rogers lists $13M Texas palace

Real Estate

After striking out with his first offering in 2014, retired MLB player Kenny Rogers has pitched his house at a lower price point, but with fewer acres attached.

Also known as “The Gambler” — named for a song by the other Kenny Rogers — the 56-year-old ex-pitcher is asking $12.9 million for his Westlake, Texas, palace on 9 acres. The five-time Gold Glove Award winner first offered the house for $14.7 with 24 acres seven years ago, according to Realtor.com.

The five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom French-style mansion spans 12,300 square feet on seemingly endless expanses of lake and gardens, according to the listing.

The Savannah, Georgia, native had a two-decade baseball career playing for teams including his home state’s Atlanta Braves and the for the Texas Rangers — twice, first in the early ’90s and again in the early 2000s. He also played for the New York Yankees and Mets, the Minnesota Twins and the Detroit Tigers before retiring in 2008.
