Westlake — More than a decade after he last swung at a pitch for the Texas Rangers, retired slugger Mark Teixeira is ready to part with one of his few remaining ties to the Lone Star State.

This time, it's a mansion in Westlake's Vaquero neighborhood that some say is valued north of $4 million.

The professional baseball player, who retired in 2016 after eight seasons with the New York Yankees, plans to sell his home at an auction. The auction will deliver the house to the highest bidder, with no reserve required, according to the listing website Mansion Global, which first reported the planned sale.

Several times in recent years, Teixeira and his wife, Leigh Williams Teixeira, have tried to sell the home, reportedly in the price range of $4 million to $5.75 million. The couple now live in Greenwich, Conn.
