Derek Jeter says he allowed cameras to follow him during his pursuit of 3,000 hits partly because "if and when" he has children, he'd like them to be able to see him as a player.
In the hour-long documentary that premieres Thursday night on HBO, the Yankees shortstop says he's jealous of teammates whose kids get to watch their dads while they're still playing.
New York's normally private captain wore an in-game microphone and did an interview at his home for the first time for "Derek Jeter 3K." MLB Productions got some unexpected drama when Jeter went on the disabled list with a calf injury, and the crews accompanied him to rehab.
Jeter had control over what was shot, but he didn't see the documentary until after it was completed.
