LOGANVILLE, Ga. (AP) _ A Georgia family has created a huge image of Atlanta Braves’ star Chipper Jones, plowed into their cornfield so that it’s visible to passing airplanes.

The image, near Georgia Highway 81 in the Loganville area, is also a corn maze. Misty and Lamar Duren tell The Gwinnett Daily Post that the maze is moderately difficult, and takes people about 30 to 45 minutes to get in and then find their way out.

The Durens say their inspiration for plowing paths through seven acres of corn was a desire to honor the ballplayer, who announced retirement plans in March after 18 years with the Atlanta Braves.
