Dodgers Iconic Uniform Earns Even More Accolades

Baseball has a long history full of incredible teams, great players, memorable moments, and iconic jerseys. The Dodgers uniforms are truly one-of-kind. It’s a simple design that’s remained largely unchanged for decades.

As it seems, it’s not just the Chavez Ravine faithful that are partial to LA’s jerseys. ESPN’s Joon Lee ranked the Dodgers’ current jerseys first in his “Ranking MLB’s all-time greatest uniforms” article. Lee even thinks it’s one of the best jerseys in all of professional sports.

“The Dodgers have had the same basic uniform look dating back to their days in Brooklyn, aside from the change from the “B” to the “LA” on the caps, and the names added to the backs in 1972. The Dodgers script, the red numbering and the clean white look remain one of the most pleasing designs in all of sports.”

Lee expanded on his reasoning in a video clip that accompanied the article.

“It’s a classic jersey. You got the splash of red that’s a little surprising. It looks classic. It’s been on so many legendary players.”

Dave Schoenfield agreed with the Dodgers first place ranking. Buster Olney simply smiled and nodded as Lee expounded on the visual appeal of LA’s jerseys. Jeff Passan was Lee’s only ESPN co-worker that disagreed with ranking the Dodgers first and called the decision “boring”. In a light-hearted way, of course.

There’s a slew of notable names who have transcended the sport of baseball while clad in Dodgers blue: Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Duke Snider, Sandy Koufax  – just to name a few.

We might be a little biased, but there’s no finer jersey in MLB. Past, or present.
