New York Mets third baseman David Wright has had a bounce-back year on the field, but he struck out in the real estate department. The New York Post reported that he has finally found a buyer to pay $6 million for his 4,100-square-foot penthouse at the Infinity Flats building in the Flatiron District.

Wright purchased the unit, at 24 East 21st Street, for $6.1 million in 2006, and installed a number of bachelor-friendly touches, including a hot tub on the roof deck (the installation of which shut down the block), a pool table and a salt-water aquarium. In March 2011 he began renting on the Upper East Side and one month later listed the condo for $7.85 million under Core brokers. It was last listed by Sotheby’s International Realty’s Juliette Janssens and Allison Kaufman for $6.25 million.

The Post said the buyer is not a bachelor, but rather a married couple named Thomas and Karen Boehlert. In addition to accepting a lower offer on the apartment, Wright was forced to remove the aforementioned aquarium and pool table to make room for the couple. They were represented by Elizabeth Fuller, also of Sotheby’s. [Post, 1st item]
