The Los Angeles Dodgers unveiled a 60th anniversary logo that will be worn as a uniform patch during the 2018 season as the team celebrates six decades in the city. The official unveiling took place during an event at City Hall, which was attended by Steve Garvey and Fernando Valenzuela, among others.

The stop was one of many that are scheduled throughout the week as part of the Dodgers Love L.A. Community Tour, which culminates Saturday with FanFest at Dodger Stadium. The focal point of the special logo is the iconic City Hall building, which stood as the tallest when the team relocated to Los Angeles in 1958.

The move and first Opening Day was celebrated with a ceremony at City Hall and parade that ended
at the Coliseum. The Dodgers spent four seasons in the football venue before Dodger Stadium opened in 1962.

Also featured in the anniversary patch are 10 stars to represent the team’s number of National League pennants won in Los Angeles. Included in that are five silver stars for the World Series titles that have been won since 1958.

A final detail is the stars being six-pointed, in another ode to the Dodgers’ 60 years in Los Angeles.

The Dodgers previously recognized their time in the city by installing a pop-up museum at Dodger Stadium. The theme is “60 Years in L.A.,” and the museum includes memorabilia and artifacts that look at the past, present and future of the organization.

The Dodgers begin their 2018 season as reigning NL champions on Thursday, March 29, against the San Francisco Giants in the opener of a four-game series at Dodger Stadium.
