Las Vegas, United States - June 15, 2019 /PressCable/ —

New York City, NY / Major League Baseball is in full swing with Joe Torre as MLB’s Chief Baseball Officer. Torre was a national spokesperson for CohnReznick, one of the top advisory, assurance, and tax firms in America, for a winning advertising campaign.

CohnReznick is currently collaborating with Major League Baseball to reveal, explore, and celebrate the business behind the game of baseball. Their sponsorship also includes the creation of two new video series, the “Business of Baseball” and “Front Office Focus.” The series examines the strategic issues MLB franchises tackle on and off the field.

Businesses of every kind face similar strategic and leadership issues every day. Torre’s advertising campaign for CohnReznick faced many challenging issues of its own prior and during the day of shooting.

“Try finding an appropriate baseball stadium that actually looks like a professional MLB ball park, during the peak of spring training. Now that is a challenge!” shared Michael Grecco, Celebrity Photographer who was retained to shoot the CohnReznick campaign.

MLB’s Philadelphia Phillies Team have their spring training every year at Bright House Field (now Spectrum Field), a baseball stadium located in Clearwater, Florida. This was one of the only stadiums that would work due to Torre’s busy travel schedule.

“The ultimate problem was getting a stadium to allow us to shoot while all of their teams were training there. Everyone said no, until I came up with the idea and suggested that we have Joe’s manager make the request. ‘Yes sir, when would you like to shoot here’ was the reply we got. Now that’s respect!,” said Grecco of Torre’s name recognition.

Serious creativity was needed by Grecco and his team to make this ball park look like a Major League Baseball Stadium. A small window of a few hours was all the time Grecco and his team had to pull off a celebrity photoshoot and video shoot, right after the Phillies finished practice for the day, and before Torre had to catch a plane later that evening.
