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.
