New York Yankees are going through a wonderful run in the ongoing MLB season. It is probably the first time the Yankees are dominating the entire Major League Baseball in the last few years. Be it fans, players, or even ex-players, The Bronx Bombers have waited very long for this moment.

However, amidst all the good news, a former Yankee and Hall of Famer, Mariano Rivera, suffered a major financial loss. During his playing days for the New York Yankees, Rivera had bought a massive mansion in New York’s Westchester. But, the former Yankees legend no more owns the Westchester mansion, as he sold it at an enormous loss of $2 million.

The mansion is a nine-bedroom home that includes a sports bar, swimming pool, basketball court, a movie theater, and multiple suits. The reason is still unknown why Rivera sold it after so many years. What is more shocking is that he sold it at such an immense loss.

New York Yankees legend sold his house for $3.8 million

Per The Real Deal, Mariano Rivera bought this home in 2006 for a whopping $5.7 million. Logically, the value of the property should have been more. But the Yankees legend ended up selling it for just $3.8 million.

It is not that Rivera sold his property in a hurry. The Yankees legend had placed it on the market for $4 million in 2020. But he did not get any buyers until now.

Per Boardroom, Rivera sold his property to the current tenant. Taking to Instagram, Boardroom shared details of the deal and a few inside pictures of the home.
