The Dodgers today have revealed their much anticipated City Connect uniform Thursday, featuring hats and jerseys with the phrase "Los Dodgers" a tribute to the team's connection with its Latin fan base and a homage to the 40th anniversary of "Fernandomania," that is being celebrated this year.
“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,” Dodgers executive vice president and chief marketing officer Lon Rosen said in a statement.
The Dodgers will debut the uniforms for the first time at home on Friday and Saturday against the New York Mets. For the first time in team history, the Dodgers will wear blue jerseys and pants together. On the uniforms, sleeves feature spray-painted accents -- meant to be a nod to Los Angeles's city street art culture and the murals.
