SOUTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) -- As Derek Jeter plays his final regular-season home stand with the Yankees, a New Jersey farm is preparing to welcome guests to a 5-acre corn maze carved in his honor.

The VonThun Farm in South Brunswick opens its Jeter corn maze Saturday. The farm is about 55 miles south of Yankee Stadium.

"Thanks Captain Clutch" is carved into the maze, along with a baseball with Jeter's No. 2 on it. Cindy VonThun, whose husband's family owns the farm, says the maze will be open through Halloween, Oct. 31.

VonThun says the original idea was to do a design this year with a tractor carrying pumpkins, but The Maize Company in Utah, which is contracted by the farm to build its annual maze, came up with the idea to honor Jeter.
