According to the New York Daily News, producers of the upcoming Derek Jeter 3K documentary, were hesitant to ask Derek Jeter if he would allow them to wire him for sound during his chase of 3,000 hits. Knowing he has always declined to do so in the past, Executive producer David Check brought a video clip of Cal Ripken Jr. to Jeter’s apartment. The clip was of Ripken’s final Yankee Stadium appearance when he was wired for sound. Derek watched a few minutes and said, “I’ve seen enough, I’m going to do it.” 
For the first time ever, Jeter wore a microphone during two games including the  one where he reached the 3,000 career hit milestone. DEREK JETER 3K the hour-long documentary special from HBO and Major League  Baseball Productions, will premiere Thursday, July 28th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on  HBO. The special will include new interviews with his family and friends as well as  Yankees executives, legends and teammates such as Hal Steinbrenner, Brian  Cashman, Joe Girardi, Joe Torre, Curtis Granderson, Dave Winfield, Minka Kelly,  Billy Crystal, and many more. Liev Schreiber, the voice of HBO Sports, will  narrate.
