Dodgers Fans Get To Pick Throwback Uniforms For 2011
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Peanuts, hot dogs, Cracker Jacks and…old uniforms from the 40s?!
Dodgers fans will get the chance, via an online poll, to pick one of three throwback looks for the 2011 season.
The home team (that means the Boys in Blue) will be decked out in the old-style uniforms for six mid-week home games. On those six days, all food and drinks will also be half-priced.
Voting starts February 7th and runs through February 17th.
It will be the first time in four seasons the Boys of Summer will harken back to seasons past.
The uniforms to choose from:
1. The 1911 Brooklyn Dodgers road uniform featuring narrow pinstripes and the name “Brooklyn” running down the button panel.
2. The 1931 road uniform with a large capital “B” on the front of the jersey.
3. The 1940s era “satin” road uniform which is blue and white and features the word “Brooklyn” in script.
The winning uniform will be announced on Feb. 25, the day before individual tickets go on sale for the 2011 season.
The Dodgers will first wear the uniforms April 21st against the Atlanta Braves. The date is significant as it’s the franchise’s first-ever victory, also against the Braves, in 1890.
The other throwback games are May 4, June 15, June 22, August 10 and August 31.
