New Dodgers City Connect cap for the 2022 season
Last season, the Los Angeles Dodgers were among the first seven teams selected by Nike to participate in the City Connect series, which dressed the team in an all-blue look for the first time in franchise history.
It additionally featured a new cap design with “Los Dodgers” in cursive rather than having the team’s trademark “LA” logo embedded. The change matched the “Los Dodgers” written on the chest of the Dodgers City Connect jersey.
Nike and MLB selected seven more teams to participate in the City Connect program for this season, while those from last year retained their designs. However, the Dodgers City Connect uniform for 2022 includes minor cap changes.
“Los Dodgers” was replaced with the traditional logo and shifted to the right in a smaller font. Additionally, the Dodgers lid spout was changed to black for this season.
The Dodgers wore their updated City Connect uniform against the New York Mets on Saturday. It was the first time they had done so since donning the somewhat polarizing design last season.
Some fans and players wanted a different design and detailing, but a general consensus was that a blue jersey — like what the Dodgers wear during spring training — was a welcome addition. Justin Turner was among those who championed the Dodgers to incorporate a blue jersey during the regular season.
Design of Dodgers City Connect
Nike worked with each individual team to create their respective uniforms for the City Connect series, which is meant to represent the fan base.
“The Dodger uniform is an iconic part of the franchise’s identity. While our traditional look has been and always will be worn by the franchise’s great players, the City Connect program has given us the opportunity to recognize the impact and the importance of our multicultural fanbase,” Dodgers executive vice president and chief marketing officer Lon Rosen said in a statement during the jersey presentation.
“We are thrilled to debut these City Connect uniforms on the field and know our fans will enjoy seeing ‘Los Dodgers’ on the uniforms as well as our new murals, which bring Los Angeles street art culture to Dodger Stadium.”
