Voting Opens On Dodgers Throwback Jerseys

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Los Angeles Dodgers are taking it back to Brooklyn — for their jerseys.

The throwback uniforms will be worn at six midweek home games, which include half-price food and drinks for the first time at Dodger Stadium. Fans get to choose which style their team wears.

One uniform style was worn by the Brooklyn Dodgers 100 years ago — a 1911 road uniform with narrow pinstripes and the name “Brooklyn” displayed vertically down the button panel.

The second option is the 1931 road uniform, which sports a block capital “B” on the front of the jersey.

The third style is the 1940s era “Satin” road uniform, which is blue with “Dodgers” script in white.

Fans can vote for their favorite style starting today through Feb. 17 at dodgers.com/throwback.

The Dodgers will wear the uniforms for the first time on April 21 against the Braves, the anniversary of the franchise’s first victory, which also came against the Braves in 1890.

    Changing jerseys won’t bring a championship to LA any time soon…. This team is 2 or 3 players away from competing in World Series – It’s been 23 yrs since the Dodgers have gone to a World Series and won…SAD….Plus going to a game is a nightmare and overly
    Priced $$$$ (2 hotdogs and 2 beers = $40.00) The fans have changed as well, I have paid more to sit with normal people then to spend $10 bucks to sit with savages, gang banger Illegal’s. LAPD are present at games to keep the Neanderthals in check…

    NO Thanks….. I’ll go to Angel Games….clean and fun and no worries of knuckleheads ruining your fun at the park.

    I agree with Mrvikings. Instead of throw back jerseys, just throw the Dodgers away. Angel games are fun, safe and create a family atmosphere.

    Dodgers suck doney wangs no matter how you dress them.
    Put them in skirts, that would be most befitting of these wussies.

    As a USC alum, I’d have to vote on the first one by default; the last two look very offensive to me🙂

    I AM A VERY BIG DODGER FAN FROM BRISTOL CT PLUS I HOPE THAT ONE THE DODGERS AND RED SOX MEET IN THE WORLD SERIES WHY I LIKE BOTH TEAMS IN MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL AND IT WILL BE GREAT YOU HAVE THE BEST PLAY BY PLAY MAN IN BASEBALL

    they are from Los Angeles not Brooklyn, and it is way to expensive im a big dodger fan,but even parking cost to much, im handy cap and they charge 15 bucks !!

  7. Erica kinyon says:

    i think the third one to the right is going to win

    1.To the McCourts: how could you allow the positive things that brought you to the alter and to heights rarely experienced by a man abd wife become so horribly negative as to indicate that each would wish the other never existed? It’s so incredibly sad when mutual respect is forever lost.
    2.To Dodger scouts: I know it’s easier said than done, but if you can find youthful Nolan Ryan and Randy Johnson clones ready to start and bring in just three defensive specialists with sprint star speed, WITHOUT sacrificing current premium players, you should still be able to reach the LCS minus two HR specialists.
    3. Uniform # 3

  10. Tony Mattera says:

    1911 jersey please,very classy

  11. lametropolitan says:

    I like the idea of throwbacks but this is Los Angeles NOT brooklyn !! We don’t want to see anything saying brooklyn (although the pinstripes are nice but thats not the point). The Jersey’s with just the letter ” B ” are good enough and they look pretty good. Also with the baby blue the “B” can also mean Bruin.. LOL –

    —- L.A fans stick with your teams through thick and thin… Dodgers might not do too well this year so Dodger fans hold your heads high and ride it out !!! —Lakers RULE !! Go Clippers ! —Signing off, ANGEL FAN !!..

  12. lametropolitan says:

    Definetly the 1931’s

  13. dodger69 says:

    1st of all the Angels should go back to were they belong!! There so confussed they don’t even remember. Let’s get this rite! Anaheim is in Orange County!!. And one last note half of ur coaching staff were dodgers before going there so GO DODGERS always will be #1 no matter what.
