It looks like someone else will be taking Minka Kelly out to the ballgame.

The Friday Night Lights beauty and New York Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter have called it quits after a 3-year relationship, according to, who broke the news early Friday.

"They care about each other and it was amicable," a source told People. "They're still friends."

“I will refrain from complaints, condemnation, and criticism. #PeaceIsTheWay."

Kelly, 31, was a regular presence at Yankee games during the relationship. She cheered as Jeter, 37, cemented his eventual ticket into the Baseball Hall of Fame by collecting his 3000th hit during the Bronx Bombers' July 9 game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

The split didn't seem to impact Jeter's play during the Yankees' 22-9 rout over the Oakland A's on Thursday, as he went 3-6 to bring his batting average up to a healthy .299.
