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 2,996 hits after going 2 for 6 on Tuesday night in Cleveland. He returned from the disabled list Monday.
