Jeter 3000th Hit Documentary Premieres July 28 on HBO

The combined HBO/MLB documentary on Derek Jeter‘s quest for 3000 hits — Derek Jeter 3Kpremieres next Thursday, July 28, at 9 p.m. on HBO. The Yankee captain wore a microphone for the game against Tampa Bay in which he went 5-5 and collected his milestone base hit on a home run off Rays left-hander David Price, so the hour-long documentary promises to include some previously unseen aspects to the future Hall of Famer’s on-field approach. Jeter, who had never been miced up during a game prior to this documentary, also wore a microphone in the game prior to his record-setting day.

It’ll be interesting to see how much time in the documentary is devoted to Christian Lopez, the selfless Yankee fan who asked for nothing in exchange for returning the milestone ball to Jeter. Lopez became a story himself when it came to light that he owed more than a $100,000 in school loans and would be hit with taxes on the free goods and services he received from the Yankees for turning over the valuable piece of memorabilia to Jeter.

Fox, MLB Set Early Start to 2010 World Series Game

Fox and Major League Baseball have announced the start times for the 2010 World Series, and there is a pleasant surprise among them. Game three of the Fall Classic, scheduled for Saturday October 30, will begin at 6:57 PM ET, a full hour earlier than last year’s Saturday game.

The pre-7 PM start time is the earliest World Series game since game six of the 1987 series

The other games will begin at 7:57 PM, with the exception of game four on Sunday, which will begin following Fox’s NFL coverage.

Viewers can thank Chevrolet for the earlier start time, with the auto company committing an additional level of advertising support for the game.

“I am extremely pleased we are able to provide our fans the earliest World Series start time since 1987 with Saturday’s Game Three,’” said Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig in a statement. “The changes we made with FOX last year to start the World Series games earlier helped increase viewership including more young fans and we are optimistic that the earlier start time for Saturday’s Game Three will keep us moving in the same direction.”

More information, and the full schedule, is after the jump.
