Chicago Cubs star Anthony Rizzo sold his South Florida mansion. The first basemen sold his estate in Parkland for $2 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The 5,800-square-foot mansion has a movie theater, steam room, pool and a batting cage. Rizzo listed the home in the spring with an asking price of $2.199 million.

The mansion at 6747 Northwest 63rd Way was bought by the three-time All Star and World Series champion for $1.83 million in 2013, a few months after Rizzo signed a $41 million contract extension with the Cubs.

The home was advertised as the personal residence of “Baseball World Series Champion Anthony Rizzo,” according to Realtor.com. Joshua Jamal Smith and Illeana Smith bought the house.

Rizzo, who grew up in Parkland, renewed his bond with the community in the wake of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, his alma mater. The slugger left spring training this year to return to his hometown, and he spoke at a vigil for the slain students.

Rizzo hasn’t left South Florida entirely, however, as he bought a $4.5 million mansion in Fort Lauderdale in June, according to the Miami Herald.

Even though they’re in a hot pennant race, the Cubs have been active on the real estate market this summer. Outfielder Jason Heyward bought a 19th-floor condo in Chicago’s No. 9 Walton for $6.9 million, joining a number of other big-name locals in the new luxury high rise.

In June, Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts sold his home in suburban Wilmette for $2.5 million to Loyola University men’s basketball coach Porter Moser. [Los Angeles Times]
