According to the New York Post, NY Yankees team captain Derek Jeter and Friday Night Lights actress Minka Kelly are planning to get married later this year.

The two have supposedly settled on the 5th of November as the wedding date, which is at least two days after the World Series ends. The Post did some detective work and found an entry in the official calendar at the upmarket Hotel & Estate Oheka Palace in Long Island.

It’s set for the first Friday in November and the calendar read “Jeter wedding.”:

The sumptuous Long Island site is certainly suitable for the superstar shortstop. The opulent Oheka features a French-style chateau hotel and spa, with an exquisite main ballroom and formal gardens with eight reflecting pools and three fountains.

The castle — the second-largest private residence in the United States — has hosted lavish parties for royalty, Hollywood stars and heads of state for nearly a century. Teen idol Kevin Jonas was married there last month.

Oheka, known for fiercely protecting the privacy of its guests, would not comment.

But a Post reporter, posing as a bride-to-be seeking to book a wedding that weekend, was shown a scheduling calendar printout as sales manager Rick Bellando explained that the castle hosts just one wedding per day — and the entire weekend in question was already booked.

A quick peek at the calendar revealed Jeter’s name in big bold letters.

When our spy asked if couples were ever open to switching dates for money, Bellando said most were so wealthy, money was not an issue.

“I guess if it were Derek Jeter getting married, he really wouldn’t care about my money,” our reporter suggested, pointing to the entry.

Bellando chuckled, but quickly tried to dismiss speculation.

“Oh, that’s not Derek Jeter. We wouldn’t use his real name if it were. When the Jonas brother got married here last month, we used a different name.”
