Plate-Pro is a Disabled Veteran owned and operated family business. Paul and his wife Pam spent 25 years in the U.S. Army serving around the world before Paul retired in 2017. During his service Paul worked as an amateur umpire wherever the Army stationed his family. Not happy with products that were on the market, Paul designed Plate-Pro as a means to keep that professional military bearing and look when working behind the plate without compromising comfort. Currently, Paul produces each set of Plate-Pro Shirt Stays himself which ensures the highest quality for our customers. If he won't wear it, he won't ship it.
