Former Cubs slinger Kerry Wood has officially become a suburbanite. The retired pitcher, who is trying to ditch his Lincoln Park house, recently closed on a six bedroom, 11,000-square-foot mansion in the North Shore suburb of Winnetka, paying $4.225 million for the property, the Tribune reports. Built in 2014, the house is basically still brand new. It features coffered ceilings, custom millwork, a media room, a walnut-paneled office space, a wine cellar and an indoor basketball court. While Wood still hasn't been able to find a buyer for his Chicago house, which is currently listed for $3.25 million, he has decided to move on to bigger digs.
