Many New Yorkers spent the weekend celebrating the legalization of gay marriage in the state. Retired Mets slugger Mike Piazza had a different reason to party—he finally found a buyer for his Tribeca triplex after three years.The sale was not much of a homerun, more of single.

The 3,012-square-foot two-bedroom at 161 Hudson Street came on the market July 7, 2008, just a week before the All-Star Game that summer at Yankee Stadium. The asking price was $6.8 million, though it was reduced that November to $6.5 million. The home came off the market the following February and was never relisted.

That pitch was no winner, though. Final score? According to city records, $4.58 million. That is only $360,000 more than Mr. Piazza paid in 2004. He had a damn impressive career batting average of .308 in the majors, but when it comes to real estate, Mr. Piazza is hitting a mere .085.

The buyer who stole the home is hiding in the dugout of an anonymous LLC.
