Colonial Savings F.A. sued Maria Arias, the baseball star’s widow, who reportedly has been running his estate, and his mother, Maritza Fernandez.

Court documents show that is the principal amount of a loan secured by the four-bedroom, three-bathroom house is $401,372. Colonial Savings is foreclosing to recover a total of $519,893 including interest, inspection costs, attorneys’ fees and other expenses.

If the amounts owed remain unpaid, a public sale of the house at 3991 Southwest 128 Avenue is set to start at 9 a.m. on September 23.

Fernandez paid about $680,000 to purchase the house in October 2014, three years after the Marlins drafted him.

Details on the property from Realtor.com and Zillow.com show it has a tennis court and an open floor plan designed for entertaining indoors and outdoors.

Fernandez died at age 24 in a September 2016 boating accident. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission determined that Fernandez was drunk and high on cocaine while speeding when he crashed his boat into a jetty off South Beach. [Miami Herald] – Mike Seemuth
