Future baseball Hall of Famer Albert Pujols is walking away from two properties months after retiring from the sport.

Pujols has put his Irvine, Ca. home on the market for just under $10 million.

Considered one of the best hitters in baseball history, he is also selling his Leawood, Kansas, home for $2.3 million, 10,000-square-foot home. The five-bedroom, 7.5-bath mansion in Kansas is just south of Kansas City.

The Irvine, Spanish revival-inspired mansion has five bedrooms on a 9,239-square-foot home with eight bathrooms on three floors.

As of today, the sale is listed as pending on Redfin.

The pool, which was recently remodeled, has a baja step, a custom rock slide grotto, and a waterfall accompanied by a jacuzzi. 

The basement is home to a movie theater, wet bar, full bathroom, a meditation room, and space for a home gym.

Pujols bought the property in 2012 for $5.5 million soon after signing a 10-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels.

Pujols, who spent 22 years in Major League Baseball, became the fourth player to surpass 700 career home runs. He played for the St. Louis Cardinals, Angels, and Los Angeles Dodgers.
