They’re finally here. After months and months of waiting, the Dodgers have finally unveiled their city connect uniforms.
The uniforms are part of Major League Baseball and Nike’s City Connect Series, which are designed to explore a franchise’s connection to its city and its fanbase’s distinct personalities, values, customs and traditions.
For over six decades, Angelenos have been united by a team, a dream and a color. Whether you refer to that color as blue or azul, we all share a connection and an allegiance to a team that inspires our art and story. We are Los Angeles, somos Los Dodgers. pic.twitter.com/Iba5mt12rE— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) August 19, 2021
From the Dodgers on their uniforms:
On the 40th anniversary of Fernandomania, the Dodgers’ City Connect uniforms salute the team’s connection with its Latino fanbase with ‘Los Dodgers’ on both the uniform cap and jersey front. The design respects the tradition of the club’s uniforms with the familiar team script and red numbers on the jersey front, but boldly clads the team in Dodger blue jerseys and pants for the first time in franchise history. The uniform’s sleeves are accented by a pop of spray paint, a nod to the City’s street art culture and the murals which add color to buildings throughout Los Angeles.
From Lon Rosen, Dodger Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer:
“The Dodger uniform is an iconic part of the franchise’s identity. While our traditional look has and will always be worn by the franchise-great players, the City Connect program offered us the opportunity to recognize the impact and importance of our multicultural fanbase. We’re excited to debut these City Connect uniforms on the field and know our fans will enjoy seeing ‘Los Dodgers’ on the uniforms as well as our new murals, which bring Los Angeles’ street art culture to Dodger Stadium.”
The Dodgers will wear these uniforms on Friday and Saturday at Dodger Stadium against the Mets.
