LA Dodgers New Road Alternate Jersey 2014

Following their rivals up-the-coastline in San Francisco, the Los Angeles Dodgers today unveiled their new road alternate jersey.

The new Dodgers jersey is grey with “Dodgers” across the front (instead of the “Los Angeles” on the current road greys) in that oh-so-familiar blue script.

“Because we are equally proud of our iconic brand name and the city we represent and with the number of Dodger fans across the country, we felt it important to have two sets of road jerseys to feature both the team name, as well as Los Angeles” – Dodgers’ Executive VP Lon Rosen

This “Dodgers” script across the front of a road grey jersey is nothing new at all for the Dodgers franchise, the team first wore this style of script on their road jersey during their days in Brooklyn back in 1938. They wore them again from 1946-1958 (their first season in LA), and then again from 1970-1998.

What’s different with this version compared to when they last wore the jersey is there will be no white outline around the Dodgers script, as seen in this game worn Kirk Gibson road uniform from the 1988 World Series:

The 1988 Dodgers road jersey had white outlines on the "Dodgers" script and sleeve stripes; both missing from the 2014 version

The 2014 version will be blue on grey, just like the existing road uniform. The San Francisco Giants unveiled a similar road alternate uniform prior to 2013 which was also based off of their road jersey of the ’80s. Earlier this off-season the Chicago Cubs unveiled a road grey alternate inspired by their uniforms of the 1920s.

You can buy the new jersey at the official MLB shop now right here.

The Dodgers plan on wearing the jersey for select road games throughout the 2014 season, including their season opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Australia.
