The all-blue uniforms with “Los Dodgers” written on the cap and jersey are designed to highlight the franchise’s connection to its city and fan base.
They also incorporate the team’s script and red numbers. A pop of spray paint is detailed on the sleeves to reflect the city’s street art culture and murals.
“The Dodger uniform is an iconic part of the franchise’s identity. While our traditional look has and will always be worn by the franchise-great players, the City Connect program offered us the opportunity to recognize the impact and importance of our multicultural fan base,” said Dodger Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Lon Rosen.
“We’re excited to debut these City Connect uniforms on the field and know our fans will enjoy seeing “Los Dodgers” on the uniforms as well as our new murals, which bring Los Angeles’ street art culture to Dodger Stadium.READ MORE: Man In Critical Condition After Being Stabbed In Lancaster

City Connect jerseys will be for sale beginning Thursday at Nike.com, MLBShop.com, the MLB Flagship Store in New York City and select retail locations and available at Dodger Stadium retailers starting Friday.
Fans can also grab the new gear at a pop-up event this weekend at Santa Monica and Lynwood.
