LA Dodgers Unveil Throwback 1940’s Brooklyn Jerseys
The Dodgers will wear these uni’s at six midweek day games in 2011.
Via LA Dodgers:
Each of the games will feature half-price food and drink, including alcoholic beverages, for the first time ever at Dodger Stadium, with a special half-price six-game ticket plan available for fans who want to attend each of the games.
Nearly 50,000 votes were cast at dodgers.com/throwback with the winning uniform edging out the 1911 road uniform by less than 2,000 votes.
Though the original uniform worn in the 1940s was made of a highly reflective satin fabric to make it more visible under the lights for night games, the throwback jerseys will maintain a similar feel as those worn by the Dodgers throughout the 2011 season.
The jerseys will be available for purchase by fans at Dodger Stadium beginning on the first date they are worn, April 21, when the Dodgers welcome Atlanta to Chavez Ravine. That date marks the anniversary of the franchise’s first victory, which also came against the Braves in 1890.
