Where Are They Now: Baby Cake Ford

Answer: I have no idea. I made a half-hearted attempt to find Betsy Ford with an e-mail that was never returned. Anyway, I just think this picture is hilarious. I don't know if she was a fan who called herself Baby Cake and had some special bleacher routine, or if this photographer just happened to snap her and she just happened to be wearing a "Baby Cake" shirt. Let's find Baby Cake and ask her what the deal was!

PS: The game (which had just ended when the photo was taken) was June 22nd, 1980, as evidenced by the linescore behind her. Tony Perez's two-run dong in the 3rd broke a 2-2 tie, and the Sox held the lead the rest of the way. Mike Torrez scattered 13 hits over six and a third, and Tom Burgmeier pitched a perfect two and two thirds for the save. Red Sox 6, Angels 3.

Update: A few seconds after posting this, I Googled "Baby Cake Ford," and as you can see, this is the first time those words have ever been strung together in Internet history!

Update 2: A few seconds after that, I looked closely (for science) and noticed there's probably an S at the end of "Cake." So we should be looking for Baby Cakes Ford....
