David Ortiz Sells Suburban Miami Home for Record $10.55 Million

Baseball Hall of Famer David Ortiz has sold his Pinecrest, Fla., mansion for $10.55 million. The sale is the largest ever recorded for a home in the Pinecrest suburb of Miami, according to The Wall Street Journal. 

Ortiz built the home in 2019 after paying $1.5 million for the space in 2016, the year he retired from MLB after making 10 All-Star Games and winning three World Series titles with the Boston Red Sox. The five-bedroom, roughly 10,200-square-foot property has a home theater with a bar, a sports memorabilia lounge, an outdoor kitchen, a gazebo, a pool, and three fire pits. Ortiz listed his Pinecrest home for $12.5 million in February. 

ONE Sotheby’s International Realty’s Michael Martinez represented Ortiz in his sale, while the undisclosed buyer was represented by ONE Sotheby’s Dennis Carvajal.

Pinecrest is located about 20 miles southwest of downtown Miami. Ortiz, who also owns a home in Boston, had his home sale beat the neighborhood’s previous record set by Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro in December when he paid $10.5 million for a home in Pinecrest. 

Ortiz, nicknamed Big Papi, was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2022 in his first year of eligibility after a 20-year career as one of baseball’s most-feared sluggers. He finished with 541 career home runs.

Fox Sports signed Ortiz to a multi-year deal in 2018 to be a studio analyst for the network’s baseball coverage alongside fellow retired MLB star Alex Rodriguez. A-Rod and Ortiz’s broadcasts this MLB season will be joined by Derek Jeter, giving the network three key faces of the epic 2000s rivalry between the Yankees and Red Sox.
