Secaucus bakery Sweet & Flour is featured in an advertisement for MLB Network that is getting played on TV and in major league stadiums.
Secaucus-based MLB Network chose the bakery as the site of a couple of scenes early in the ad, which is set to the classic song “Cheek to Cheek”. In the opening moments, Sweet & Flour co-owner Gina Petruzzelli is shown handing a baseball-themed ice cream cone to 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 that was made by Petruzzelli from an oven in Sweet & Flour’s kitchen.
The commercial debuted in April and is the latest bit of recognition for the bakery, which has garnered lots of fans since opening on the corner of Front and 7th Streets in 2014.
