Baseball Hall of Famer and 12-time All Star Mike Piazza has bought a three-bedroom condo at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach for $5.6 million, according to Lionheart Capital, the developer.

The 3,838-square-foot condominium has a flow-through floor plan that offers views of Surprise Lake and Biscayne Bay.

Features include three and one-half baths, a private elevator, great room, family room, den and 3,132 square feet of outdoor space.

Piazza — best known for his performance on the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York — and his wife Alicia also bought an additional on-site guest suite listed for $580,000, as well as an on-site storage unit.

“We are an international family living abroad, with Miami Beach as our U.S. base,” the Piazzas said in a statement. “We lived on Sunset Island for about 12 years and feel we are ready to embrace a more service-oriented lifestyle. We are looking forward to the ‘lock-up and go’ freedom.”

Closing on the unit is slated for Friday.

Amenities at The Ritz-Carlton Residences include a private marina, helipad, meditation garden, fitness center with open-air yoga studio, rooftop pool deck with cabanas and a gourmet restaurant, spa, bar, club and social rooms, art studio, cinema-style screening room, pet grooming facilities, beach concierge and 24/7 concierge service managed by The Ritz-Carlton.

In late 2017, the Piazzas listed their 9,647-square-foot home on Sunset Island II in Miami Beach for $18.5 million after Mike became the majority owner of A.C. Reggiana 1919, an Italian soccer club. That house, at 1401 W. 27th St. in Miami Beach, is still on the market and currently priced at $14.75 million. The soccer team filed for bankruptcy in 2018 and is now defunct.

The buyers were represented by Viviana Junc of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, whose development marketing division is handling sales at The Ritz-Carlton Residences.

In addition to playing on the Dodgers and Mets, Piazza’s 16-year career included stints with the Florida Marlins, San Diego Padres and Oakland Athletics. He was a catcher and first baseman.
