STERLING, Mass. (AP) — Nothing quite measures up to the latest tribute to retiring Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz.
A corn maze dedicated to the player known as Big Papi was unveiled at a ceremony Tuesday in Sterling, Massachusetts.
Ortiz had a message for his legions of fans at the unveiling: “I love corn.”
The 8-acre maze was created by Davis Mega Maze and features a cornstalk rendering of Ortiz’s trademark home run pose of pointing two fingers to the sky. It’s accompanied by the phrase “Thanks Big Papi.”
