The grand formal dining room is spacious enough to entertain many guests. Or, in Jeter's case, a whole baseball team. The Real Deal reports that Jeter decided to downsize after completing a 30,000-square-foot manse in Tampa, Florida. Oh, plus his split with gf Minka Kelly likely means he doesn't need such a huge Manhattan abode anymore.
