Back in November, we passed along the story of Orioles' pitching prospect Kevin Gausman's heartbreak over the elimination of Hostess. That's because Gausman has a ritual to eat three Hostess powdered donuts in between every inning he pitches.
Fret no longer, Mr. Gausman, because All-Star center fielder Adam Jones has taken care of it. Gausman arrived Sunday morning in the Orioles' clubhouse to see his locker filled with Hostess powdered donuts -- enough to last him years. Here's the photo evidence, thanks to fellow hurler Zach Britton (via BaltimoreSun.com).

Gausman, a 22-year-old LSU product, had a 3.60 ERA with 13 strikeouts and only one walk in 15 innings last season in High-A and Low-A combined.
