A deep connection exists between America’s favorite pastime and America’s favorite peanut spread. In fact, peanut butter is as much a part of baseball as hot dogs, sunflower seeds and bubble gum. It’s a tasty tradition and one that stretches from dugout to dugout all across America.
HomePlate Peanut Butter was created by a group of former professional baseball players who grew up playing baseball every day and eating a ton of peanut butter. During those long days in the minor leagues, they counted on the delicious spread. A sandwich at daybreak and another one at day’s end. Loaded up on some saltines before a workout. A tasty spoonful for a boost between innings. They grew to love peanut butter as an inexpensive and accessible way to stay fueled and fit.
Unfortunately, their options were limited to big sugary brands and oily, chemical-laden concoctions. They didn’t want to stir their peanut butter. And they wanted peanut butter that was delicious, but fit their training regimens. After they retired from the game and began grocery shopping for their own little leaguers, they became convinced that families, athletes and America deserved a better peanut butter.
HomePlate Peanut Butter’s mission is to create peanut butter that meets the rigid standards set by the professional baseball players who make up the company’s founding team. Every flavor is made from natural and sustainable ingredients.. No goopy oil layer, or gritty, chalky texture, just wholesome, great tasting peanut butter.
HomePlate’s reviews from athletes and moms have been overwhelming. People can see and taste the difference. In fact, HomePlate Peanut Butter was selected as the official peanut butter of the Professional Baseball Clubhouse Manager’s Association. Jars of HomePlate can now be found in the clubhouses of all 30 Major League Baseball teams.
One serving of HomePlate Peanut Butter at a time, the tradition between baseball and peanut butter lives on. HomePlate is proud to provide great tasting peanut butter for the next generation of athletes and families.
