It may not be a field seat, but at least it has a view of Central Park.

Steve Swindal, a former New York Yankees executive and the team’s one-time heir apparent, bought an 852-square-foot condominium unit at the Continuum Company-developed CitySpire for $1.4 million, according to property records filed with the city Wednesday.

The one-bedroom condo, located at 150 West 56th Street, is one of 338 units in the Midtown tower, which overlooks Central Park and was constructed in 1987.

Gazi and Zeynep Ercel were the sellers. Charlie Panoff and Zach Lantz of Keller Williams NYC handled the listing.

Swindal was married to the daughter of George Steinbrenner, the principal owner of the Yankees from 1973 to 2010. For some time, Swindal seemed to be Steinbrennar’s obvious successor, until the couple divorced in 2007. Later that year, the Yankees bought out his interests in the team.

Correction: An earlier version of this story misidentified the owners of the residential portion of CitySpire. Tishman Speyer and the National Pension Service own the building’s commercial portion.
