Tony Gwynn To Appear On Wheaties Box

OUR FAVORITE PADRE IS “FIT TO WIN!!!” (OK, MAYBE NOT): Baseball is shoehorning inducting Tony Gwynn into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown in just over a week, which we think is really cool.

As you might imagine, the honor means certain marketing opportunities for Mr. Gwynn. The Padres announced one such honor this week on their website, as Gwynn will soon appear on a Wheaties box as part of the company’s “Fit To Win Challenge”.

The San Diego State product included in a promo called “Fit To Win“? Makes perfect sense, considering the perpetually pudgy Gwynn never won a World Series title. Perfect.
