HBO explores Jeter's milestone in depth

BY foxsports • July 20, 2011

Yankees fans can get a rare glimpse into Derek Jeter's life off the baseball diamond on July 28 when HBO debuts its documentary on the Bombers shortstop pursuing 3,000 hits.

Normally media-shy, Jeter allowed Major League Baseball's cameras to follow him as he chased history — a journey that included his rehab from a calf injury.

Jeter reached the milestone July 9 with a home run off Rays starter David Price. The Yankees captain went 5-for-5 that day and had the game-winning hit.

The documentary is titled "Derek Jeter 3K" and will air at 9:00pm ET.
