This is perhaps stretching the limits of baseball-related, but I’ve long had a crush on Jenna Fischer and ‘The Office” happens to be an NBC show. So whatever.

Anyway, according to Fischer recently purchased a house in Glendale, California that was originally built for Hall of Fame baseball manager Casey Stengel in 1925.

Almost a century later Fischer spent $1.9 million on the place that “boasts five bedrooms, three bathrooms, housekeeping quarters, a giant dining room and living room, and a spacious kitchen.”

Oh, and also “a tennis court, sparkling pool, a personal fruit and tree orchard, and a summer house with a built-in fireplace.”

Back in 1925 Stengel was finishing up his 14-year playing career with the Boston Braves and he got his start as a manager in 1934.

    Certainly nothing wrong with a Jenna Fischer crush, but couldn’t you have used her picture instead of Stengal; god rest his soul?

        Good man!

        And she’s an NL gal. Nice!

    Is it me or does that pic look nothing like the Jenna Fischer that I see on the office?

    She is a cutie!

    Love her. Smokin’ hot when not dressed down on the Office.

    I don’t want to be that guy, but she looked a lot better a few years ago. Not saying I’d turn her down, but she was so hot back when she did blades of glory.

      They dress her down for the office. She has said it takes the makeup people more time to look plain on the office than it takes makeup people to make her look good for red carpet events.

      Blades of Glory though was a nice look for her.

      Michael Scott, is that you?

    How does Jim feel about this?

    A summer house. With a fireplace. In Glendale. Does not compute.

    Love that chick but who cares

  10. greej1938l - Nov 16, 2012 at 2:39 PM

    Someone let Jenna know im available to help her break in all of the beds for her!

    • Jeremy T - Nov 16, 2012 at 2:50 PM

      Andy already took care of breaking in the beds

  11. oquintero99 - Nov 16, 2012 at 2:51 PM

    Please take a look at the Wired Magazine issue where Jenna was on the front cover. Sweet!

    I must be missing something here…

    Who buys a house when they are about to be unemployed? Isn’t the Office about done?

    This must signal that Jenna Fischer has another gig after the Office.

    • spellingcops - Nov 16, 2012 at 6:57 PM

      Or maybe she isn’t living paycheck to paycheck and can afford it.

  13. jlovenotjlo - Nov 16, 2012 at 6:53 PM

    I heard it also comes with a 60 acre beet farm

    • bozosforall - Nov 16, 2012 at 9:22 PM

      More like 60 acres of guys like you all, beating your meat to her cheesecake photos.

      • stercuilus65 - Nov 17, 2012 at 6:41 AM

        as opposed to guys like you beating it to pictures of Dwight.

      • bozosforall - Nov 17, 2012 at 9:58 PM

        I don’t watch the show, so I’m not beating it to anyone, loser boy. Nice try though.

  14. black6yellow - Nov 16, 2012 at 7:17 PM

    She’s so hot….dibs!

    This is a great blog, one of my favorites, along with MetsBlog, PFT & Inside the Irish, however, WHO CARES???? How in the world is it relevant news during the Hot Stove season that some no-name, two-bit actress bought Casey Stengel’s house? Very bad job, Craig. You shouldn’t allow stories like this to be posted.

    • stercuilus65 - Nov 17, 2012 at 6:42 AM

      get a life

  16. greej1938l - Nov 17, 2012 at 9:50 AM
