Joe Mays and his wife have bought another house in Manatee County

EAST MANATEE -- Former Major League Baseball pitcher and Southeast High School standout Joe Mays has sold his home in the Waterlefe Golf & River Club community for $1.175 million.

The 5,127-square-foot, three- bedroom, four-bathroom, canal-front home at 10314 Riverbank Ter. sold June 16 to Matthew and Doris Nessetti, according to county property records. The Nessettis are physicians who practice at the All Care Medical Centers in Bradenton and Venice.

The home originally listed for $1.299 million. Mays and his wife, Melinda, purchased the home in 2009 for $950,000, according to county records. Listing agent Tom Cail with ReMax Alliance Group's Sarasota office said the home spent two weeks on the market before selling after its first showing. Jason Grande, also with ReMax, co-listed the home with Cail. Steve Georgie with Keller Williams was the buyer's agent.

Grande said the Riverbank Terrace sale stands out in the Waterlefe community.

"It's the highest-priced sale that's happened in there in the past year," he said.

Mays, 38, a right-hander who played for Southeast and Manatee Community College as an up-and-coming ball player, spent seven years in the major leagues. He started his pitching career with the Minnesota Twins in 1999 and finished with the Cincinnati Reds in 2006. His career win-loss record was 48-70, according to the MLB website.

The Mayses have purchased another home in Manatee County at 303 Heritage Isles Way. They bought the 1,956-square-foot house June 17 for $280,000.
