With girlfriend Minka Kelly rooting from a luxury box, Derek Jeter got his 3,000th career hit Saturday with a home run against the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium.
The team captain, 37, became the first Yankee to reach the milestone and the 28th to do so in major league baseball.
Kelly, 31, who is preparing for her role as a tough crime fighter on ABC's upcoming Charlie's Angels reboot, was among Jeter's family and friends at the game.

Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter might not be getting married today. But how about tomorrow?
In the February issue of GQ, the actress, 30, denies that a wedding is imminent – but doesn't exactly put the rumors to rest beyond the short term.
"I promise you, I'm not getting married in the next month," Kelly says – though that's not much help, given that the interview took place at the beginning of December.

Take her out to the ballgame!
With the New York Yankees just two wins away from the World Series, Minka Kelly was cheering loudly at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx on Wednesday as her longtime beau Derek Jeter and his team bested the Texas Rangers, 7-2.
The couple have long been the subject of engagement rumors, though they've never confirmed that they plan to wed. In January, the New York Post reported that the baseball player and Kelly, 30, were set to tie the knot on November 5, only days after the World Series is scheduled to conclude.

Minka Kelly says she had the best days of her life when her mom kept strange hours with an unusual job.
"She was a stripper," Kelly, who was named Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive this year, tells the magazine. "It was all about what we could do to have fun with nothing. She would come home at like three, four o'clock in the morning, and she would wake me up in the middle of the night and we'd go grocery shopping."

It's been a rough year for Tiger Woods, but perhaps $90 million will help ease the pain.
That's how much the golf champion raked in between his $20 million in sports winnings for 2009 and $70 million in estimated endorsement earnings for 2010 – putting him in the top spot, for the seventh straight year, of SI.com's "Fortunate 50" list of the highest-earning American athletes.
In the wake of his sex scandal, Woods, 34, is pulling in about $22 million less in endorsement money compared to 2009, but his golf winnings last year were greater than in 2008 – leaving him only about $10 million down overall.

Somehow it's hard to picture: Derek Jeter picking out place settings and flower arrangements in between chasing another World Series title.
But that's the word from his hometown paper, the New York Post, which reports the Big Apple's most eligible bachelor for a long time is finally going to settle down with a November 5 wedding to Minka Kelly.
Never mind that the pair haven't even confirmed they're engaged, or that the run-up to baseball's Fall Classic may cut into the Yankee star's wedding-planning commitments: the ceremony is supposedly scheduled for two days after the end of the World Series. Not to mention, the Yankees still have to make it to the Series for the scheduling conflict to be an issue.

On top of the world after winning the World Series, Yankees stars Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter celebrated with a night out in New York City with their teammates – and their Hollywood girlfriends Kate Hudson and Minka Kelly.
Following their triumph Wednesday, the group headed to 1OAK to toast their victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. And they made it a family affair: Hudson and A-Rod arrived at the club around 2:45 a.m. with his mother, sister, and Hudson's step-dad, Kurt Russell, all in tow.
"Kate and A-Rod were affectionate with each other – hugging one another," says a partygoer.

It may seem obvious to observers, but Derek Jeter still still refuses to admit that he's dating Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly.
In a new interview with Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard Column, the New York Yankees shortstop laughs while rebuffing a reporter's inquiries about the rumored couple.
"You know I'm not going to tell you anything," he said when asked why he and Kelly were standing next to each other on the sidelines at a football game in Austin Oct. 18. "How many other people were at the stadium?" he continued, adding: "You're not going to get anything from me."

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.

Derek Jeter plays the field during baseball games – not during his off time.
"I've hung out and dated people I've never even met before," the Yankee slugger tells Sports Illustrated, referring to reports of his ladies man status.
Instead, the newly named Gillette spokesman, records his favorite TV shows: American Idol and Entourage, and calls Drama his favorite character from the latter.
