I Choose the Satin Uniforms

I think this is pretty exciting news. The Dodgers will be wearing "throwback" uniforms from the Brooklyn days for 6 home games this coming season. Better yet, the uniforms will be made of the same material as the vintage counterparts, and the fans get to decide which of 3 different uniform style the team will wear.
Dodger fans are invited to vote online for which uniform the players will wear beginning Monday, February 7 at 12:01 a.m. through Thursday, Feb. 17. Fans can visit to vote for one of three historic Dodger uniforms.


The winning uniform will be announced on Feb. 25, the day before individual tickets go on sale to the public. The first date that the Dodgers will wear the throwback uniforms and offer half-price food and drink is on April 21 vs. the Braves, the anniversary of the franchise’s first victory, which also came against the Braves in 1890.

Half-price food and drink, including alcoholic beverages, will also be offered on May 4, June 15, June 22, August 10 and August 31. The Dodgers will wear the throwback uniforms in each of those games.

You all must choose the satin uniform from the 1940's- 1944 to be more exact. The original uniforms are so goofy they are great. See an example of an original below. Yes, they were meant to reflect under the lighted night sky. Here is the link that goes live in a couple of days.Below are the 3 different styles provided by the Dodgers.

1911 Brooklyn Uniform
The first of the three uniform options was worn by the Dodgers exactly 100 years ago. The 1911 road uniform features fine narrow pinstripes and the BROOKLYN name displayed vertically in small capital letters down the button panel. Known as the “Superbas,” the Brooklyn team wearing this uniform played its second-to-last season in 1911 at Washington Park .

1931 Brooklyn Uniform
The second option is the 1931 road uniform, which was the only variety of the 1930s uniform designs to sport a block capital “B” on the front of the jersey.

1940's Brooklyn Uniform
The third option is the 1940s “Satin” road uniform, which is blue and features the trim and DODGERS script in white. With the advent of night baseball at Ebbets Field in the 1940s, the original uniform used a highly reflective satin fabric to be more visible under the lights.
