Pence signs deal as spokesman for Glassboro bakery

    Hunter Pence just inked a three-year deal. The Phillies outfielder will be the face and voice of Glassboro, N.J.’s Liscio’s Bakery.

    The Philadelphia Business Journal reports the hoagie and cheeseteak roll bakery signed Pence for a TV, radio and billboard campaign that also includes in-stadium and online ads.

    Pence will also pen a monthly nutrition column for the bakery’s website. Sounds like a far tastier deal than the baseball gig.
