For a diehard baseball fan, there are hundreds of ways to show support for the sport. For most, this translates to buying a new ball cap or throwing on a jersey to go watch the game. For us, well, we can't think of a a better way to than to cruise around town in an Italian sports car, once owned by a former World Series champion.

For sale right now on AutoTrader.com is a Maserati Gran Turismo S that once belonged to decorated baseball player Luis Castillo.

Castillo played for three teams during his MLB career, but he is probably best known for his time playing for the Florida Marlins from 1996-2006. During that time he won the Gold Glove three times and became a three-time All-Star. He led the league in stolen bases in 2000 and 2002, and in 2003 Castillo helped the Marlins beat the New York Yankees to win the World Series.

And, much like the player, this Maserati comes with a few accolades of its own. The Gran Turismo S distinguishes itself from the base model with a more powerful engine. Its 4.7-liter Ferrari-sourced V8 puts out 440 horsepower and can launch the car from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds.

Castillo's Gran Turismo was painted in Maserati's Nero Carbonio black and with a red leather interior. Outside, the Gran Turismo rolls on a distinctive set of 20-inch gunmetal-gray wheels that are designed to look like the company's trident logo. This Gran Turismo is also one of only 300 that was fitted with the optional Formula 1-inspired Cambiocorsa racing transmission.

Castillo only managed to rack up a little more than 15,000 miles on the GT in his two years of ownership, and the Florida dealer selling the car has it listed at $99,987. That's still a lot a cash, but for the willing, we can think of very few better ways to show off your team spirit.
