“It is considered a real break for
us that Steve Carlton has entered
the world of commercial en
dorsement, and is now ‘pitching’
for us,” says Lehigh President
Robert P. Barry. “One of the most
disciplined of athletes, he has the
kind of image that should prove

mercial opportunities through the
years. Because of Steve’s concerns
with fitness and nutrition, Lite
Milk is certainly a product which
he feels comfortable endorsing,
because it relates to his life-style.”
A new commercial created by
Montgomery and Associates and
produced by Schulman-
Berry Kramer uses Steve’s
legendary silence as a “hook.”
Steve enters the Phillies trophy
room in uniform, turns to an off
camera announcer and admits he
finally has “something important
to talk about.” He then talks about
the product, then concludes with
“Take it from Lefty - keep it Lite. ”
According to Ted Heck,
marketing vice president of Lehigh
Valley Farms, the dairy
cooperative plans to air the new
commercial at various times
throughout the year, starting on
the day of the major league All-
Star Game.

in Baltimore, Maryland.
Sales of all products amounted to
$287 million last year. Company
officials attributed growth in
recent years to a heavy com
mitment to advertising. In addition
to Lite, the company actively
promotes LactAid, a specially
digestible milk for people with
lactose intolerance.
Lehigh also supports its ice
cream products with heavy ad
