"I was like, 'Yeah, heck, yeah, I want to be on a cereal box' -- it's awesome," Rizzo said Thursday. "As a little kid going to the store, I was grabbing all the cereals off the shelf."
He has yet to try the honey nut toasted oats cereal. The box features a drawing of the two-time All-Star swinging the bat.
"I'm sure I'll like it," Rizzo said of the cereal.
Maybe being featured on the cover of a Wheaties box is next?
"Hopefully," Rizzo said. "That's the ultimate."
