Buy Bill Buckner’s Boring Idaho Estate For $1.7 Million [PHOTOS]

Bill Buckner will never escape infamy. Spared a lifetime of Red Sox fans’ grudges only because of Boston’s 2004 and 2007 World Series titles, Buckner has served as hitting coach of the Boise Hawks, a Chicago Cubs’ Single-A affiliate, since 2011.

We’re betting that even in sleepy Idaho, though, some asshole calls Buckner out at least once a month about the Mookie Wilson grounder that rolled through his legs in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series.

Buckner hasn’t been living in a cave. His massive Boise ranch estate has everything you’d want — especially if what you want is to stay away from public places.

Included in the $1.7 million price tag are multiple balconies and patios, a pool and spa, incredible views and a horse stable.

Remember: there’s no sense in closing the gates once the horses are out of there.

Highlights of Bill Buckner’s Boise House:

• 5 bedrooms, 5 baths

• 6,625-square-feet on four acres

• 5.6 miles to Spearmint Rhino

• 3.3 miles from Whole Foods

• 2.5 miles to Behavior Health Associates

Mortgage: $9,310 per month after $340,000 down; does not include custom Mookie Wilson shooting targets.
