LA Dodger fans

Recommended Posts

I don't care that the official Dodger logo has a few red streaks either. So does the Yankees and they don't don red in their uni.

And this right here is why the Dodgers, not the Yankees, have the best home uniforms in baseball. That touch of red is what makes the Dodgers unis work.

Well said.

I've always found the Yankee uniforms to be highly overrated, bland, and boring. The Dodger unis are extremely recognizable and appealing to the eye. Easily best unis in baseball. I would go as far as to say that the Tigers' home unis are better than the Yankees home jerseys...but that would be left for another thread.

Here's a wild idea on why The Dodgers use red numbers. It's a bit out there but give it a chance...

Maybe, like a lot of us here, the person who designed the uniforms thought the red numbers looked good too. Perhaps that's all there is to the story.

The front numbers on the Dodger home uniforms were supposed to be introduced in the 1951 World Series against the Yankees, but Bobby Thomson and the Jints took care of that idea. So the Brooks just waited until the 1952 season to unveil them. As to why the numbers are Red? It's one of the mysteries of the ages.

Love the red numbers too. Whichever reason they're there, it was a good idea. More teams should consider adding a small, unique, detail that becomes theirs. Bravo Dodgers and this is coming from a Padre fan.

Slightly OT: I know this shouldn't bug me, but it does...

One more oddity...I found this in a official 1998 file - it was their official club lettering that seems to be last used in 1998. Don't know when they started using it...

Just don't go to South Central.

Did you have to use your AK?

I'm kidding, really... It's not as bad as you'd think. Just don't go out looking for trouble.

The club lettering has been used at since the Brooklyn days.

Not with the red "LOS ANGELES" above it, which was (I think) his point.

Anybody who has CW on facebook will agree with me that the combo of Don and this post is hilarious.

You do realize that in the early-to-mid-90s, I worked as an assistant music producer in L.A., working with R&B, Hip-Hop and Rap artists, right?

And no, I'm not joking.
