Mapleside Farms pays tribute to Francisco Lindor and the Indians with its largest corn maze yet

BRUNSWICK, Ohio -- Here’s something that will bring a smile to the man they call Mr. Smile.

Mapleside Farms has created a seven-acre corn maze that pays tribute to the Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor. From the air, you can see an outline of the three-time All-Star as well as the Indians block “C” logo and the words “Go Tribe.”

The maze is part of Mapleside’s annual fall festivals and Pumpkin Village, which open for the fall season on Friday, Sept. 7.

“We’ve had an incredible string of great teams here in Cleveland over the past 3-4 years and we love the way the Cleveland Indians represent our great city, and specifically how Francisco plays the game with his whole heart and soul,” said Mapleside Farms owner Greg Clement in a Facebook post.

In previous years, Mapleside has honored Browns left tackle Joe Thomas and LeBron James and the Cavaliers 2016 NBA Championship team with their own corn mazes. Compared to those, the Lindor maze is “50 percent larger and a couple levels harder,” a Mapleside spokesperson said.

Other attractions include a 311-foot slide, Ohio’s largest “jumping pillow,” hayrides and train rides. Pumpkin Village at Mapleside Farms, 294 Pearl Rd., is open weekends through Oct. 28. Admission is $14.
