The Cincinnati Reds should have a clear path to the NL Central title considering they hold the biggest division lead in baseball with an 8 1/2-game advantage over the St. Louis Cardinals.

The path of Reds fans toward October may not be as easy, though. At least not if they enter this year's corn maze at Irons Fruit Farm in Lebanon, Ohio. The farm's annual tradition is honoring the local nine this fall with a 12-acre maze to conquer. Fans will pay an extra dollar in admission with the additional fee going to benefit the team's charities.

It really is an amazing work of art. Not only does it include a fantastic portrayal of Mr. Redlegs and intricate logos from the past and present, but it also includes a hidden reference to at least one legendary member of the franchise (see if you can find it).

From the Cincinnati Enquirer:

There's even a tribute to beloved broadcaster Joe Nuxhall, who died in 2007: An arrow, looping under a base, points to "3rd." That's a nod to Nuxhall's signature phrase, "rounding third and heading for home."

The farm did a Bengals-themed maze back in 2007 that also looked great, though it didn't have much of an impact on the team's disappointing 7-9 season. With the way the Reds have been playing, this edition has the chance to be popular and relevant right up to harvest.
