Wednesday ended up being a mixed kind of day for Derek Jeter — the kind of 24-hours that only happens to someone like the New York Yankees' millionaire shortstop.

Just before Raul Ibanez's dramatic walkoff home run gave the Yankees a 2-1 game lead in the ALDS against the Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees shortstop limped through the game with a bone bruise after fouling a ball off his left foot. And earlier in the day, Jeter finally sold his Trump World Tower penthouse apartment for a whopping $15.5 million — although he took a beating on his original $20 million asking price.

Don't shed any tears for the future Hall of Famer though. Jeter insisted he will be able to play in Game 4 tonight and still managed to pull in a neat $2.9 million profit on the deal for his bachelor pad.

Ahhh ... the life of Jeter.





Jeter sold the four-bedroom apartment — which towers over the East Side of Manhattan — to Brazilian magnate Silvio Luiz Reichert. He said he wants to downsize his Manhattan holdings to a pied-a-terre. The 38-year-old Jeter still has his 20,000 square-foot mansion in Tampa, Florida to romp around in when he needs to stretch his legs




The 5,425 square-foot trophy apartment was first put on the market in September 2010 after purchasing it for $12.6 million in 2001. The luxurious 88th floor crib boasts 16-foot floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping views of the city. If that doesn't impress the ladies, there is the 77-feet long entertainment room which includes a living room, billiards room, piano lounge, wet bar and formal dining room to go along with New York's most eligible bachelor's green eyes.
