HBO Making Doc About Jeter's 3,000-Hit Chase

HBO will broadcast a documentary about Derek Jeter's pursuit of career hit No. 3,000.

Major League Baseball Productions is following the Yankees captain for a one-hour special called "Derek Jeter 3K." The network said Tuesday that Jeter agreed to let camera crews follow him at home and while he was rehabilitating a recent calf injury.

The documentary will include new interviews with family, friends, teammates and executives Jeter's girlfriend, Minka Kelly and Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner. It will air a few weeks after Jeter reaches the milestone.

The shortstop was at 2,994 hits after returning from the disabled list Monday and going hitless against Cleveland.
