No one in the history of Major League Baseball closed out games like New York Yankees relief pitcher Mariano Rivera

But for years now, the man who has more saves than anyone in baseball history has had a hard time finding someone to step into the box and strike a deal for his mansion in Tampa, FL.

However, the Yankees legend is toeing the real estate rubber yet again and listing his home for $5.9 million. It had been listed for $8.9 million in 2010.

At a discounted price, the 1.27-acre property on the banks of Lake Shore is even more enticing. The 9,000-square-foot mansion has seven bedrooms and seven full bathrooms. It sits inside Avila, a gated country club community.





Inside, the features are numerous. How about your own library? Not into reading? How about your own theater, billiard room (with custom bar, no less), exercise room, playroom, or loft area? The mansion also has a guesthouse and a gated motor court with a five-car garage.

Downstairs, the mansion features a “state-of-the-art” kitchen and a pair of en suite bedrooms. There are three additional bedroom suites on the upper level of the home.

Outside, there’s a heated pool with spa, a kitchen, and entertainment space. Oh, and one more thing: The home is being sold fully furnished. 

Over his 19-year career, the Panama native saved 652 games—no one in baseball history has more. He also recorded 82 wins and posted a lifetime ERA of 2.21. He made 13 All-Star teams.

Rivera’s legendary status was cemented in the postseason when he helped the Yankees win five World Series. His 42 postseason saves are the most ever. The Yankees retired Rivera’s No. 42 in 2013, and he’s eligible for the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2018.
