Found January 25, 2012 on The Other Paper:
Alex Rodriguez hit another one out of the park after he sold his New York City condo for a $2.5 million profit— only eight months after he bought it.

Too bad it was Riverside Park.

While the New York Yankees slugger was last seen striking out at the plate last season, he has been scoring big time with real estate in Manhattan.

A-Rod paid $5.5 million for the 3,600 square-foot, four bedroom West Side bachelor pad and it went into contract last week for $ 8 million.

There is now speculation that the free-swinging Rodriguez— who has hooked up with the likes of Madonna, Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz— may be looking to settle down with his latest flame former-pro wrestler Torrie Wilson.

Some Yankee fans probably wish it meant he was going to another city and team— but alas, no such news.

The state-of-the-art pad includes a black leather pool table in the living room with sweeping views of Manhattan and the outlying areas including Yankee Stadium.

A-Rod's bachelor playground is located in the Rushmore on Riverside and 64th Street which boasts such amenities as a 7,000 square-foot Palestra fitness center with an indoor pool and basketball court.

He was often spotted working out there with other Yankees players and his ex, Diaz.

While A-Rod scored a home run with this sale, it sounds like he is on some sort of real estate hitting streak.

According to the New York Daily News, since A-Rod moved in, the Rushmore has become the city's hottest luxury building and Rodriguez's former residence at 15 Central Park West has become the most successful condominium building in the world.

Now if he could bring a few of those big hits to the Bronx.
