Former major league infielder Damion Easley wants to sell his baseball-themed Glendale, Arizona, mansion for $5.5 million.

The 15,000-square-foot house, near Happy Valley Road and 67th Avenue, comes with an indoor batting cage, a miniature outdoor diamond, a bedroom adorned with a scoreboard and another room with a mural of Tiger Stadium, where he played for the Detroit Tigers. Shower tiles in a few of the house's eight-and-a-half bathrooms form baseball diamonds.

Easley played second and third base as well as shortstop during his 17 years in the major leagues. His most productive years were in Detroit, where he was an All-Star in 1998. He played for the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2006.

His house is the priciest one on the market in Glendale. Vincent Clark of Arizona Premier Agents has the listing.

A bedroom includes a mural of Tiger Stadium, where Damion Easley played for the Tigers from 1996 to 2002.
