Nick Markakis left Baltimore for Atlanta last year, but never actually moved out of his old place. Now he is moved out, and you — yes, you! — can maybe replace him in the same way that Mark Trumbo did in right field last season.
The former Orioles and current Atlanta Braves outfielder put his Monkton place on the market last month. The four-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath, Colonial-style home is listed for $925,000.
According to Realtor.com, "the 1.7-acre property features a wide front lawn, perfect for a game of catch. The home's lower level features a living room, family room, den, kitchen, and dining room, all anchored by a central, curving staircase to the second floor."
Orioles catcher Matt Wieters may have stolen the spotlight with his walk-off home run in the 11th inning Monday, but for most of the night, it was the Nick Markakis show. The right fielder spent nine seasons with the Orioles before signing with the Atlanta Braves in the offseason, and Monday marked his first time returning to Camden Yards to play his old club.

There's a three-car garage and a detached six-car garage, in case you want a home with room for as many cars as there are players in a batting order. Above the detached garage is a "professional-grade home gym," too, if you want to lift weights like Nick Markakis, even if you can't lift with him.
Then again, maybe you'll run into him at the local supermarket and you can show off your newly earned six-pack. He put his Sarasota, Fla., home up for sale last year after signing with the Braves, and he told The Baltimore Sun in April 2015 that he was planning to build another house in Monkton.
"That's where we're going to be," Markakis said. "That's where my kids were born. It's where they've got their friends. We love the area. We love the community, so that's where we're going to call home."
