'Derek Jeter's 3K'
What: TV documentary
When: Thursday, July 28
Channel: HBO
Time: 9 p.m.

Yankees’ captain Derek Jeter’s 3000th hit will be the focus of a new HBO documentary scheduled to premiere Thursday.

The hour-long documentary, produced by Major League Baseball Productions, follows the Yankees shortstop on and off the field, covering everything from Jeter’s recovery from a calf injury to his history-making hit on July 9, when he went 5-for-5 against the Tampa Bay Rays.  The documentary also includes interviews with family, teammates and friends — including fiancée Minka Kelly.

In a rare move to better document the highly anticipated moment when he got his historic 3000th hit, Jeter was allowed to wear a wireless microphone for the game.

He is the 28th person in Major League Baseball history to make it to the coveted 3000th hit and the first Yankee to do so.
