Ballparks all over the country have honored Derek Jeter throughout his final season in the major leagues, with everything from Cowboy hats, to his number in a mosaic done with subway tiles.
That’s fine and good, but how can the average person honor the Yankee captain? We can’t all afford to give him a $30,000 watch like Robinson Cano did in Seattle.
Nope, us fans have to get a little more creative. like fans in Kansas City who wore cat suit onesies to honor the “cool cat”.
Now Von Thun’s Country Farm in Monmouth Junction, New Jersey has upped the ante a little bit. The farm made a gigantic five-acre corn maze, thanking “captain clutch” and featuring his face. Well, the best you can do with corn anyway.
Of all of the achievements that Jeter has obtained this year, like passing Lou Gehrig to become the all time doubles leader for the Yankees, or moving into six place on the all time hit list, where does this rank? Well, how many people can say that they have ever had their likeness portrayed in a corn maze.
This is certainly one of the more unique gifts that Jeter has got this year.
My only question is: Will he show up to go through his own maze?
