Found October 20, 2011 on Busted Coverage:

What do we remember about Pat Hentgen’s run as a right-handed pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays? Oh, maybe that 1996 season when he won 20 games and had 10 complete games on his way to a Cy Young Award. That was pretty much the end, though. He’d eventually make $37,000,000 over a 14-year career and then buy a house in Tarpon Springs, Fla. with one of the most worthless theater rooms we’ve ever seen. Pat, seriously, $2mm for that garbage?

And what’s up with the film photos uploaded for the listing? No idea. Maybe Hentgen doesn’t roll with a digital camera. Still old school? ‘Stache and film cameras?

Don’t even get us started on that state-of-the-art theater room. Here we thought Cory Maggette’s room was ******** with its Batman theme. At least he has a theme. True, those pics are from 2004, but still.

jQuery(function($){$("a img.gallery-wall-fade").hover(function(){$(this).stop().animate({opacity:.5},{queue:false,duration:400});},function(){$(this).stop().animate({opacity:1},{queue:false,duration:400});});});

Highlights From Pat Hentgen’s House:

• Spread out with 6,000 sq. ft.

• 6 bed, 5 bath

• 198 feet of water frontage where you’ll be able to catch snakes and snapping turtles

• 2 boat docks and lifts

• On Lake Tarpon

• 25 min. to the airport

• For sale on/off since 2008; $500,000 reduction in asking price since ’08

Asking Price: $1,967,000

Mortgage: $7,500/mo. with 20% down (Obviously extra cash needed to redo that garbage theater. Figure your numbers accordingly.)
