Major League pitcher Carl Pavano has decided to settle down in South Florida for good!

The 36-year-old, whose injury-plagued season with the Minnesota Twins yielded only 11 starts, has applied for homestead exemption on his new mansion in the Mirasol neighborhood of Palm Beach Gardens, according to Palm Beach County records.

The application may lift the veil on Pavano’s future in the sport since an exemption allows homeowners to save on property taxes for as long as they live in the house.

Sports talkers in the Twin Cities have been speculating that Pavano is planning to hang up his glove this winter after a career that included stints with the New York Yankees and then-Florida Marlins.

Pavano, whose season also included an extortion attempt by a man who claimed to have had sex with him when they were younger, quietly paid $1.9 million for the 7,300-square-foot custom built house.

The baseball star unloaded two weeks ago his bachelor pad, a smaller crib in the West Palm Beach golf community of Ironhorse. Records show Pavano accepted $580,000 for his old place in mid-October.

Here is how real estate websites described Pavano’s new Mirasol property: ”Heads turn as they drive by this uniquely designed home with a gated motor court and estate entrance. It includes six bedroom suites, library, media room, billard room and more . . . ”

While Pavano upgraded his living quarters to accommodate his new wife and their two ninos, ex-Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning downsized substantially his real estate holdings in the Miami area, Gossip Extra reported yesterday.
