The 51-year-old soccer and baseball player has shared this honeymoon home with his wife, sports colleague Michelle Beisner-Buck for almost seven years. Now its $ 3.3 million listing has an outstanding buyer – which, according to Realtor.com real estate reports, could translate into a $ 2.5 million gain for the familiar voice of the NFL and MLB.
