The Los Angeles Dodgers unveiled their Nike City Connect uniform last month and wore it for the first two games of a weekend series against the New York Mets. The club then brought back their all-blue look for an ESPN Sunday Night Baseball matchup with the San Francisco Giants on Sept 5.
As the regular season continues to dwindle down, the Dodgers are planning to wear their Nike City Connect uniform two more times, beginning with a Sept. 28 contest against the San Diego Padres.
First pitch at Dodger Stadium is set for 7:10 p.m. PT and marks the start of the Dodgers’ final homestand of the regular season. L.A will suit up in their alternate uniform for the last time on Oct. 1 against the Milwaukee Brewers, with first pitch also set for 7:10 p.m. PT.
The Dodgers’ new uniform features a blue jersey with “Los Dodgers” written in white across the chest in the franchise’s iconic font and is accompanied by black spray-painted accents on the sleeves to represent L.A.’s street art culture and murals.
The organization also redesigned their cap to have “Los Dodgers” and completed the look with blue pants. It’s the first time in Dodgers franchise history they have an all-blue uniform.
The reaction to the Nike City Connect uniform has been mixed as some Dodgers fans expressed disappointment in the design, with the most popular complaints being it is too similar to the team’s blue jersey used during Spring Training.
There additionally were suggestions that the jersey instead read “Los Doyers.”
The Padres and Brewers were not among the seven teams selected this season for the Nike City Connect series, but MLB hopes all 30 teams will have their own uniform in the near future.
