NEW YORK (AP) — 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 and teammates. Also interviewed will be Jeter’s girlfriend, Minka Kelly, and Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner. The program 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.

    I really like Jeter and think he has had an amazing career and belongs in the Hall of Fame first ballot. However, I am sorry to have to say that for me, this 24 hours a day, 7 days a week coverage of Jeter the past four weeks is really getting to be a little too much for me. I want t just get back to Yankee baseball..

      Til now, only YES was making any kind of big deal about Jeter. Everywhere else he’s been getting basted by the media. The fans hav completely turned on him calling him a Prima Donna and demanding a drop to the ninth spot in the line-up. It seems that the Yankees do nothing but win with him out of the line-up and lose with him in it. It is absolutely nauseating how he’s been killed by the pundits as though he was some scrub that was just called up an not a first ballot Hall of Famer. It’s shameful- especially from Yankee fans. And they wonder why every one else thinks that they’re spoiled. These so-called fans that grew up with them winning every other year, and with his help, can’t wait to kick him out the door, like his play in the post season meant absolutely nothing to them. I guess Mariano is next. They’ll be calling him a bum sonn enough.
