8 Most Extravagant Homes of Professional Athletes



Alex Rodriguez

A lot of people don’t like A-Rod. Whether you like him or not, his home is impressive. Unlike some of the others on this list, he doesn’t own a lot of land. Instead, his 20,000 square foot mansion sits on 275 feet of ocean front property between many other much smaller homes.

The mansion is now valued at nearly $38 million, and boasts its own gym, steam room, and nine bedrooms. It, being in Miami, was also built to withstand many of the more violent storms that seem to pop up every year. Once you’re retired like Alex Rodriguez, you can sit back and chill at home.
