Cody Bellinger is still a couple of years away from free agency, but thanks to his early career accolades, he’s got plenty of money to live the good life. At least, good enough to buy a new home in his hometown of Chandler, Arizona while listing his current abode for a whopping $4M.
According to realtor.com, Bellinger recently listed his 4,500-square-foot compound that includes a private airplane hangar and an indoor basketball court. The 2019 NL MVP purchased the home back in 2020 for $2.85M.
Cody was born in Scottsdale, but played his high school ball at Hamilton High School in Chandler.
This season, Bellinger has struggled at the plate (.695 OPS). It hasn’t been quite as bad as his 2021 campaign where he hit .165 in 350 plate appearances, but for the second season in a row, Bellinger has been far from the all-world slugger that he was in 2019.
Despite his offensive woes, Bellinger has provided the Dodgers with top shelf defense in centerfield.
