“It was one of the most beautiful properties on the market,” said Rob Thomson, of Waterfront Properties & Club Communities. “It’s on River Pointe, where there are very few homes and they never seem to come on the market.”

Records show Molina, only the third catcher in MLB history to play in two World Series by age 25, bought the 5,341-square-foot crib from a trust that owned it since 2006.

Molina, his wife Wanda and their two ninos will share six bedrooms, 8 1/2 bathrooms, a lit tennis court, movie theater, 300 feet of waterfront and plenty more goodies . . .
