Nearly four weeks after he went 5-for-5 and reached the 3,000-hit mark, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is the focus of a prime-time HBO one-hour documentary the debuts tonight at 9 p.m. with many replays
“Derek Jeter 3K” is the result of MLB Productions giving HBO its kind of “24/7” access to document the moment he accomplished July 9 against Tampa Bay with a home run.
Jeter actually wore a microphone during two games, including the one in which he reached the 3,000 career hit milestone. The MLB Productions camera crews tagged along with him at his home and during rehab on a calf injury. Interviews are also inserted with Hal Steinbrenner, Brian Cashman, Joe Girardi, Joe Torre, Curtis Granderson, Dave Winfield, Minka Kelly and Billy Crystal.
