Derek Jeter’s 3,000th Hit Will Get Its Own HBO Show

Finally, some coverage of Jeter's pursuit of the milestone! All kidding aside though, HBO Sports' all-access shows are typically pretty good, so if any network is going to provide an interesting behind-the-scenes look at Jeter's pursuit of his 3,000th hit, this is the one. On the other hand — as Pete Abraham has already pointed out — Jeter isn't really the type to grant anyone all access, so exactly what HBO gets out of the shortstop remains to be seen. (For what it's worth, MLB Productions, which is teaming up with HBO on the special, says it'll get "unprecedented access.") The one-hour special, titled Derek Jeter 3K, doesn't have an air date yet, but Darren Rovell tweets that it'll air "weeks" after he reaches the milestone. And if all the ongoing coverage of Jeter's chase — and the thought of an all-access special airing weeks later — isn't enough to satiate your hunger for all things 3,000-hit related, you have until 6 p.m. today to get yourself to the MLB Fan Cave on 4th Street and Broadway, where you can view twelve specially marked baseballs that will be pitched to Jeter once he gets to 2,999 hits. So if you want to see a potentially historic baseball — or just some baseballs that Jeter will foul off before he gets his milestone hit — this is your big chance. [Game On!/USA Today]
