A-Rod sells Miami Beach home for $30 million

By Eye on Baseball staff

Just because Alex Rodriguez hasn't played this season while recovering from hip surgery doesn't mean the Yankees third baseman hasn't been active on other fronts.

Rodriguez sold his Miami Beach house for $30 million on Friday, according to the Associated Press. The sale will net the third baseman around $15 million in profits.

Jose More, Rodriguez's business partner, confirmed the transaction.

Rodriguez initially bought the 54,000-square-foot property for $7.4 million in 2010. Using his company -- Newport Property Construction -- Rodriguez further invested in the estate by spending another $7.6 million to build a near-20,000-foot mansion.

The house includs nine bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a zen garden, a rooftop deck and a batting cage, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell. The house is also on the same street as the homes of Miami Heat stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

Here is a slideshow of images from Rodriguez's home.

“When you're offered the highest price for a home in a city's history, you have to take it,” More told ESPN.

According to More, Rodriguez has already begun looking at other homes in South Florida, but Rodriguez may knock down the structure in order to design and build it himself.

“He really enjoys the design process,” said More.
