Even More Dodger Colorizations

The best part of doing these Dodger colorizations is that I've gotten to immerse myself in Dodger history. Don Drysdale, Sandy Koufax and Duke Snyder are becoming a part of my Dodger vocabulary. Up until now, they were just those numbers hanging from the bleachers. If you haven't yet, you can see those first two posts here:

Sticking with the action shots, and trying to make these posts relevant to the Dodger action happening, I scoured the newspaper archives. These are photos from a color era, but since they were used for newsprint, only exist in black and white. I assume the black and white photos in newspapers are shot on black and white film, but if anyone knows more than me, please enlighten!

MikeScioscia

 

This one is a two-fer, as we've got Mike Scioscia from last series and the Mets from the Dodgers upcoming series. The year is 1986 and obviously we're at Dodger Stadium. You can tell it's '86 by the patch on the Mets player's arm. The patch is commemorating the Mets' 25th season. Sunday, May 18th is the date, and the Mets are winning 5-4. Tim Teufel of the Mets is on second; Randy Niemann is on first after pinch hitting for pitcher Bruce Berenyi and walking; and Mookie Wilson is at the plate.

Wilson hits a single to right field between the second and first basemen. Right Fielder Mike Marshall throws a bullet to home to get Teufel at the plate. Seeing as how it's Mike Scioscia, it's amazing he's not on his back, but it seems Teufel did him the courtesy of sliding. The Dodgers would go on to lose 8-4.

One more. With Andre Etheir throwback bobblehead night coming up, I thought it'd be neat to see what the satins looked like in action. They don't disappoint.

Since it was the uniform I was interested in, I didn't bother with too much background. Boy those satins were shinny. I guess with the popularity of boxing at the time, they make sense. But they must have gotten torn up on the field. Anyhow, thanks for following along!
