Local bakery featured in MLB commercial
Major League Baseball recently featured the Sweet & Flour bakery in a commercial, according to ESecaucus.com
The bakery can be seen early in the ad. It also shows co-owner Gina Petruzzelli holding a baseball-themed ice cream cone.
That scene also features MLB Network analyst and Hall of Fame pitcher John Smoltz. In the next scene, analyst and Hall of Fame first baseman Jim Thome removes a baseball-themed pie made by Petruzzelli from an oven in the bakery’s kitchen. The commercial debuted this past spring, ESecaucus reported.
