Dodgers Throw It Back to Fans

From Dodgers.com:

THROWBACK DAYS

INTRODUCING ALL-NEW HALF-PRICE FOOD & DRINK AFTERNOONS!

SAVE 50% OFF ALL FOOD & DRINKS!*
Plus watch the Dodgers in throwback Brooklyn uniforms that YOU get to choose during these weekday afternoon games starting at 12:10pm:

  • Thursday, April 21 vs. Atlanta
  • Wednesday, May 4 vs. Chicago Cubs
  • Wednesday, June 15 vs. Cincinnati
  • Wednesday, June 22 vs. Detroit
  • Wednesday, August 10 vs. Philadelphia
  • Wednesday, August 31 vs. San Diego

*Including alcoholic beverages

Individual Tickets for these games will be available online starting February 26th at 10AM PST.

The uniform choices (sadly, the White Sox-esque collared shirts-and-shorts option is not available):

1911 Road Uniform


1931 Road Uniform


1940s Road Alternate Uniform

That third uniform is made of a satin fabric, undoubtedly giving it the edge. The site says voting begins Monday, February 7 at 12:01 a.m. PT.

So, uh, why did they choose three road uniforms to be worn at home games?

I like the first one because it will look like they're wearing ties.

Mr. Customer said...

It's got to be the satin.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

It's hard to choose. They all look so hideous.

Steve Sax said...

This is a really cool idea, plus the discounted food and drink--well done, Dodgers.

I would vote for the satin if I could get some assurance from the team that the replicas will be satin as well. If they're just the same color without being satin, then what's the point?

I did not know the Royals played in Brooklyn.

I'm fly with the 1911's

No throwbacks at all! Leave the uniform tomfoolery to the Padres.

Isn't "uniform tomfoolery" an oxymoron?

Fernie V said...

I agree they all suck, we need a forth option.

Steve Sax said...

@FB 12:35p: hey man, I don't see camo crap as one of the choices...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

What the hell's so bad about the standard home uni with the Brooklyn script? Why can't that be an option?

Spank said...

WHY THE FUCK DO WE EVEN NEED THROWBACKS? THIS AIN'T THE nfl!!!!

WE'RE THE GODDAMN DODGERS!!!!!!

Fernie V said...

Hey that blue satin one looks like shit. I just saw a pic on vsimhb and it looks like crap.

Good idea, but why are they all ROAD uniforms if they are playing at home?
