With baseball season still months away, Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has made different use of the private batting cage in his Miami Beach mansion. According to the New York Post, in the spirit of Art Basel week, Rodriguez is hanging works by New York painter Nate Lowman in the cage, and opening up the cage as a gallery of sorts. The exhibition has attracted stars such as Owen Wilson and Val Kimer to his home. In fact, A-Rod is offering private tours of the batting cage-turned-gallery through the end of the art festival.

The third-baseman only recently moved into the mansion, and spies told the Post that guests were pretty impressed with the “modern, sleek and minimal” character of the home. [Post]
