Dodger Uniform gets some love.

In a player poll run by Major League Baseball, the Dodgers were voted as having the best uniforms in the league and for good reason.

The Dodgers current uniform structure has not changed since 1940 outside of the Brooklyn to Los Angeles change. They wear the all-white pants with no piping, the cursive letters across the chest with the bright red number that pops out, and the Dodger blue hats. That is clean.

Jose Martinez of the St. Louis Cardinals commented on it:

That Dodger Blue is something.

So did Jay Bruce of the Seattle Mariners:

There’s a purity to it.

They are both right. There is something to appreciate and respect about the consistency and the tradition of repping Dodger blue or Pantone 294.

Hall of Famers like Sandy Koufax, Duke Snider, and Jackie Robinson have worn the blue and so have legends like Pedro Martinez, Eddie Murray, and Greg Maddux. The uniform signifies greatness for the last century.

The consistency in uniform is something that most teams cannot claim and there is a beauty in that. Although we may be biased, the player poll got this one right.

What’s the favorite Dodger uniform that you own?

My name is Daniel Preciado and I am 18 years old. I am a sophomore Sport Analytics major and Cognitive Science and Economics dual minor at Syracuse University. When I am not in New York, I live in Whittier, California --- not too far from Chavez Ravine. I am pretty old-school for being an analytics guy and I will always embrace debate. Also, Chase Utley did absolutely nothing wrong.

  1. Who said Utley did anything wrong? We love Utley. Being from Whittier (I lived there too), you should know that, Daniel. Glad you’re getting your feet wet.

    • That is a comment for the many baseball fans who think Utley was at fault for breaking Ruben Tejada’s leg. He wasn’t and I agree with you!

  2. The Turney/Cey #10. Two of my faves over the years.

    PS- Off topic, but I think Joe Kelly deserves the nickname full pack(this is for the older bb fans).

  3. As a long-time Dodger fan – 65 years and counting – I can only say that the Blue is the best uniform in all of sports. How is that for an unbiased opinion? Go Blue!!!

  4. Are they ever going to win a world series? At least 1 after winning the division for a decade damn near.

  5. Other than Chavez Ravine – one of my favorite aspects of the Dodgers. Best uniforms in sports. Not just baseball.

  6. Heck yeah…..Dodgers have the best uniforms and some of the best players wear (and have worn) that uniform. I sport my Kershaw jersey and planning on extending my “wardrobe” to include Bellinger and/or Verdugo (the way he is playing right now.) GO DODGERS, best uniform and all!

  7. I have a Rollins, Either, and Utley shirt, but my Pro Jersey, the one I spent the big bucks for is… Chase Utley. Old school, just like the uniform!!
