Jackie Robinson West Featured on Frosted Flakes Box

The Little League World Series team that captured Chicago's heart now has a spot in the cereal hall of fame.

Jackie Robinson West's likeness was featured this month on boxes of Frosted Flakes holding a banner that reads "United States World Series Champions."

Though the commemorative boxes aren't for sale to the public, Frosted Flakes presented the boxes to the team last weekend "as a token of appreciation and a recognition of their amazing accomplishments at the 2014 Little League World Series."

This is the latest honor for the U.S. champs, whose homecoming this summer was celebrated with a rally at Jackie Robinson Park, a parade through downtown and a ticker-tape finale at Millennium Park.

Both the Cubs and White Sox honored the team, the players were granted their Disney World Wish, and Dick's Sporting Goods presented the team with a $164,000 check from T-shirt sales.

The icing on the cake? President Barack Obama even invited them to the White House.
