Retired Major League Baseball player Mike Lieberthal has put his home field in the North Ranch area of Westlake Village on the market for about $5 million.

The nine-plus-acre spread includes a 9,627-square-foot Mediterranean villa, a custom swimming pool and spa, a pool house, a lighted basketball court and a putting green.

Inside, the two-story floor plan features a chandelier-topped foyer, custom home theater, a wine closet and an oak-walled game room complete with a row of flat-screen TVs, a billiards table and a wet bar.


Other living areas include a gym, an office/library, seven bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. A wide center island, a country-style range and tray ceilings highlight the cook’s kitchen.

A total of four fireplaces are found in the living and game rooms, breakfast area and master bedroom.

French doors open to a covered patio overlooking the park-like setting. A porte-cochere, a motor court and a four-car garage sit at the entrance to the home.


Lieberthal bought the property in 1999 for $3.5 million. The house was on the market for as much as $6.5 million last year.

Jordan Cohen of Re/Max Olson & Associates is the listing agent. The exact list price is $4,999,950.

Lieberthal, 44, starred at Westlake High School and was later taken third overall by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1990 amateur draft.

The catcher played 14 seasons in the majors for the Phillies and Dodgers, making two all-star teams. He retired in 2008.
