Dodgers are a baseball team from Los Angeles, America. The team is regarded as one of the best in MLB, and especially on the West Coast. For the longest time, they were actually a Brooklyn (in Ney York) team, and only made a move to California in the 1950s after one of the purchases.

Who owns Los Angeles Dodgers? The team is owned by a consortium called Guggenheim Baseball Management. The biggest stake belongs to the Stan Kasten.

Los Angeles Dodgers Logo history

The team was established in 1883 in Brooklyn, New York. Over the years, they’ve changed their name plenty of time, with ‘Dodgers’ becoming an eventual choice in 1913 and then again in 1932. It wasn’t until 1958 that they were renamed to ‘Los Angeles Dodgers’ after moving to California, however.

1899 – 1901

The initial logo was a capital letter ‘B’, colored in red and written in a rather Gothic style, with lots strange twists and structures all over the place.

1902 – 1908

The color changed from red to blue in 1902.

1909 – 1909

The 1909 is really just the previous logo but simplified a lot. It still has the weird Gothic shapes, but it’s also more straightforward.

1910 – 1910

Later, they basically made it darker and surrounded it by four lines in a rhomb-like formation.

1911 – 1911

For the 1911 season, the logo was largely the same, except the color was bleached a bit.

1912 – 1913

Then, the emblem was slightly bleached again, except this time they also cut the line segments that stuck out.

1914 – 1925

They basically took the same blue ‘B’ and made it rounder and bolder for two decades.

1926 – 1927

In 1926, they made the ‘B’ narrower and put it inside a blue rhomb (also rather narrow).

1928 – 1928

In 1928, they replaced the rhomb with a red circle and returned the letter some of its width.

1929 – 1929

Later, they got rid of the circle, replaced the blue with turquoise and added a red outline across the letter.

1930 – 1930

In 1930, they made it slightly thinner, turned the outline blue and the coloring itself red.

1931 – 1931

A season later, they tried a more rectangular, bulky style, colored in turquoise with a layer of blue on the outside.

1932 – 1936

This one is pretty much just a reused 1914 variant.

1937 – 1937

In 1937, they tried a different ‘B’ again – a much thinner, rectangular and disproportioned style. This one was colored green, and it was the last single-letter variation they made.

1938 – 1944

In 1938, they tried to base their logo on their actual team name, the ‘Dodgers’. They’ve written it in a simple blue cursive with a long underlining stroke, and then skewed the thing diagonally.

1945 – 1957

The 1945 emblem has a thinner and not as strongly skewed writing, as well as a new element behind – a flying red baseball with linear trail following it.

1958 – 1967

Los Angeles Dodgers Logo 1958

They basically returned the letters to their former thickness in 1958, in addition to extending the trail of the ball behind and making it less detailed (the stitches partially disappeared).

1968 – 1971

Los Angeles Dodgers Logo 1968

In 1968, the letters became even bolder and thicker, while most of the logo stayed as it was.

1972 – 1978

Los Angeles Dodgers Logo 1972

The blue in the letters became just marginally darker by 1972.

1979 – 2011

The 1979’s one change was that everything on the logo became much thinner than before, and that’s it.

2012 – today

The coloring became visibly paler in 2012, both for the ball and the name. Moreover, red parts got thicker again.

Uniform History
