With the Yankees out of the playoffs, Derek Jeter has some time on his hands and he's spending it romantically – with Minka Kelly.

The baseball star, 34, and the Friday Night Lights actress, 28, were spotted cozying up together in Austin, Texas, last Wednesday at the live music club, Momo's, to listen to soul singer Dan Dyer.

The twosome looked "together and happy," says one onlooker.

Jeter and Kelly, who's in town filming the third season of Friday Night Lights, also attended the University of Texas football game Saturday night, cheering from the sidelines with baseball vet Roger Clemens.

This isn't the first time the new couple spent time in Austin. They were first spotted together in the hip SoCo section of town last August, sipping coffee together in Starbucks.
