The Dodgers Nike City Connect uniforms have been met with mixed reviews. That might be putting it nicely. The jerseys were officially unveiled this week and fans have rightfully torn them apart online. But as more information comes out, it sounds like they’re slowly growing on everyone.
One thing that seems to be universally hated though, is the hat. The Dodgers’ City Connect hat is also all blue and features the text “Los Dodgers” just like the front of the jersey. There is no difference other than the stacked words.
Dodgers players haven’t said much about the new jerseys, but Justin Turner seems to be a fan of the blue. He does not really seem to care for the hat though, shown here in his response to a fan on Twitter.
Just can’t wrap my head around the hat

He’s got a point. The Dodgers’ hats absolutely could’ve been miles better. Even running out a normal LA hat would’ve been a step up above these. They’re plain, they’re boring, and they’re just not really fun.
That being said, the Dodgers are almost certainly going to rock these when they wear them tonight. The all blue is a little bit of an odd look, but it might just be because it’s new. I can’t wait to see them in action!
