Updated Arizona Diamondbacks specialty license plate inspired by new uniforms

ServiceArizona.com also offers new Southwest PGA plate

PHOENIX – The Arizona Diamondbacks’ updated look doesn’t end with redesigned uniforms rolled out for this season. The organization has worked with the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division to overhaul the look of the specialty license plate raising money for team charities.

Arizona Diamondbacks License PlateThe plate, with red and black pinstripes across the top and bottom of the plate against a gray background matching the team’s new road uniforms, is now available for purchase at ServiceArizona.com and Authorized Third Party businesses.

Funds raised by the plates go to the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation for youth education and development, and to provide housing and health care for those in need.

“We are excited to refresh the D-backs license plate to reflect the same look and feel of our new uniforms,” said Arizona Diamondbacks President & CEO Derrick Hall. “We have had such a positive reaction to the new design and look forward to having fans support the team and our Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation on Arizona roadways.”

Also available through ServiceArizona.com and Authorized Third Party businesses is a new Southwest PGA license plate supporting youth golf programs in Arizona that foster sportsmanship, honesty and perseverance, and funding golf scholarships for youth based on community involvement and academic excellence.

Southwest PGA License Plate“On behalf of the more than 1,300 PGA golf professionals that make up the Southwest PGA and that serve as our daily contact with the golfers throughout Arizona, we are extremely grateful to ADOT and state legislators who helped us create the golf license plate,” said Michael Miller, executive director of the Southwest PGA.

Specialty license plates have an annual fee of $25 for a non-personalized plate and $50 for a personalized plate, with $17 going to support the charities.

There are no special requirements to get the license plates. They are also available with a disability symbol.

Because the Arizona Diamondbacks license plate is a redesign, anyone with the current plate can request the new plate design for a $5 replacement fee. However, the redesigned plate has six characters instead of the seven that are on the current Diamondbacks plate, so some personalized messages won’t transfer. Those holding personalized plates that won’t transfer will have to start the application process from the beginning and pay the full $50 fee.

The original Arizona Diamondbacks license plate design is still valid for use.
