Dodger Pitcher Lists Home by Wrigley Field

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Ted Lilly yesterday officially listed for $2.1 million

his 5,500-square-foot Chicago home that is a skip, hop and a jump from the Chicago Cubs' ballpark, Wrigley Field.

The Cubs this summer traded left-handed Lilly to the Dodgers, the club that originally drafted him in 1996. Lilly, who could have filed for free agency early next month, agreed to terms on a three-year, $33 million contract in October, in a deal that was finalized this week rather than test the open market.

The native Californian left behind his furniture for staging purposes in this five-bedroom, five-bath Wrigleyville home (pictured at the end of this post). He and his veterinarian wife, Natasha, decorated it themselves, says listing agent Mike Lavorato of d'Aprile Realty.
