LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers on Tuesday unveiled a logo for 2018 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the club’s move to Los Angeles. The team unveiled the logo at City Hall on Tuesday as part of the Dodgers’ week-long community tour leading up to Saturday’s Fan Fest at Dodger Stadium.

The logo, which will be worn on a patch on the right sleeve of uniforms, features 10 stars on the surrounding border, one for each pennant won by the Dodgers since moving to LA (1959, 1963, 1965, 1966, 1974, 1977, 1978, 1981, 1988, 2017). Five of the stars are silver, representing the five World Series championships won in Los Angeles.

Also in the logo is a depiction of the LA City Hall building, with “Dodgers” over the top. At the top are the club’s years in Los Angeles (1958-2018) and at the bottom is the number 60 broken up by “Los Angeles.”

Ross Yoshida, the Dodgers’ director of graphic design, detailed some of the features in the logo yesterday.
