This day in baseball: Breakfast of champions

Dodgers Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson became the first athlete ever to be featured on all three Wheaties cereal boxes on February 11, 1997.  Wheaties bestowed this honor in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the year Robinson broke baseball’s color barrier.  The three Wheaties varieties were unveiled by General Mills to be sold nationwide: Original Wheaties, Honey Frosted Wheaties, and Crispy Wheaties ‘n’ Raisins.
