Celebrating quite the milestone, Derek Jeter and girlfriend Minka Kelly were side-by-side in Manhattan after the Yankee pro racked up his 3,000th hit on Saturday (July 9).

The baseball star and his "Charlie's Angels" actress fiance were all smiles as they boarded a helicopter for an out of town trip following Jeter's momentous occasion against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

Garnering his 3,000th hit in grand fashion, Jeter entered the elite club by hitting a home run - with his team ending up winning the game by a score of 5-4.

Surprisingly enough, Derek is the first Yankee to reach 3,000 hits with only 27 others in MLB history having achieved such a feat.
