'Derek Jeter 3K': HBO to air documentary on Jeter

July 5, 2011 | 11:42 am


Derek Jeter has agreed to open his life to HBO cameras as he approaches his 3,000th career hit with "Derek Jeter 3K."

Major League Baseball Productions said Tuesday that Jeter agreed to have camera crews follow him at home and while he rehabilitates a calf injury for the one-hour documentary.

The special will include interviews with Jeter's family, friends and teammates. It will also feature clips with his girlfriend, Minka Kelly, and Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner.

The documentary is expected to air a few weeks after Jeter reaches the milestone. The shortstop currently has 2,994 hits.
