Dodgers All-Star Mookie Betts Relists Los Angeles Home With a Trimmed Down Price

Los Angeles Dodgers star outfielder Mookie Betts is hoping a new price will help him hit a home run on the sale of his upscale home in the city’s Encino neighborhood.

The 9,415-square-foot residence first hit the market in February for a hair under $10 million, just ahead of baseball’s Opening Day, and was taken off the market in May, listing records show.

Now that the season’s over, and “maybe a little too soon for Dodgers fans, [it’s] back on the market,” said Morgan Trent of AKG, Christie’s International Real Estate, who relisted the home with an $8.495 million price tag last week. The World Series is beginning Friday, but the Dodgers won’t be there, having been eliminated from the playoffs surprisingly early in the postseason.

A double-height foyer with a sweeping staircase leads into the property, which has “all the bells and whistles,” Trent said. There’s a chef’s kitchen with a walk-in pantry; a dining room; a living room with a fireplace and a coffered ceiling; a home theater and two laundry rooms—one upstairs and one downstairs.

But “the biggest thing you’ll notice is the amazing structure in the back—an indoor gym with a half court basketball court,” Trent said.

The air-conditioned space, complete with roll up doors, has space for weight racks, workout machines and features Betts’s initials, MB, on the blue painted court.

Outside there’s also a zero-edge pool and spa with a sunken fire pit, a putting green, a cabana and an outdoor kitchen, according to the listing.

There’s also a two-bedroom guest house with a full kitchen and living room. “It’s perfect for family that you love but don’t want too close,” Trent said.

Betts, 31, purchased the property in October 2020 for $7.6 million using an LLC, according to records with PropertyShark. He bought it from Chip Kelly, the coach of UCLA’s football team.

The six-time All Star started his career at the Boston Red Sox, where he played for six seasons before being traded to the Dodgers in 2020.

In 2018, while with the Red Sox, he became the first player in MLB history to win the Most Valuable Player, Silver Slugger, Gold Glove, batting title and World Series all in the same season.
