Retired Miami Marlins infielder Alex Gonzalez sold his South Florida home for $3 million, reports The Real Deal.

The Weston mansion sits on 1.28 acres and measures nearly 10,000 square feet. It features a waterfall in the pool, home theater with seating for 12, and towering ceilings in the main living areas.

The seven-bedroom Mediterranean-style residence was asking about $3.5 million when it listed back in July.

Gonzalez spent his first eight seasons with the Marlins, including in 2003 when he was the team’s starting shortstop and they won their second World Series.

Records show Gonzalez purchased the home for $4 million in 2007, equating to a loss of $500,000. Additional features include a spa, outdoor kitchen, and hurricane-impact glass throughout.

Other athletes connected to the Weston real estate scene include Miami Dolphins great Jason Taylor, whose home is on the market for $3.5 million, and Carlos Beltran, who is still playing pro baseball at age 40 and sold his Weston home for $4.1 million a few years ago.
