Today it was announced that Hostess, the makers of Twinkies, Cupcakes, Fruit Pies, and....Baseballs, is going out of business.
Read the story here.
Every spring, around the time for baseball season to begin, I'd always by some of the baseballs, sometimes an entire box, to celebrate opening day.
Baseballs were delicious cream filled cake treats that had the vanilla icing formed in the shape of baseball's, complete with the red icing stitches.
Back in the day Hostess even produced collectible baseball cards for kids.
So today I will go out into the streets, in search of one more box of baseballs, savoring each tasty cake, like, well, it's the last baseball to be found.
Mighty Hostess has struck out.
