Gwynn honored on Wheaties box

MLB.com - USA - On Thursday, former San Diego Padre Tony Gwynn became the newest Wheaties champion. The soon-to-be Hall of Famer was honored in right field at PETCO Park at 9 a.m. PT to unveil the fa├žade of the special-edition package box.

Gwynn, who was on Wheaties once before in 1997 with six other outfielders, said: "I've been retired for 5 1/2 years now and I was on the Wheaties box once before ... and it's taken this long to be on the box by myself. I couldn't have picked a better time, going into the Hall of Fame. It's been an incredible year.

"Wheaties was a big thing in the Gwynn household."

In 10 days, Gwynn will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., along with Cal Ripken Jr.
