- Who’s got the blues? The Dodgers have the blues! But not entirely this season. In honor of today’s opening game for the National League Championship versus the Saint Louis Cardinals, we’re going to pay a tribute to those good ole’ boys who make us bleed Dodger Blue- Ethier, Kemp, Puig, Ramirez, Uribe and… well you get the idea. After all, they are a Los Angeles treat.
So what exactly is the “true blue” of Los Angeles?
Wikipedia would have you believe a few things about the color:
“Dodger Blue is a rich bright tone of the color azure named for its use in the uniform of the Los Angeles Dodgers. It is also a web color used in the design of web pages. The web color is not used in the Dodgers' uniform but rather resembles the lighter blue used throughout Dodger Stadium.”
The Brooklyn Dodgers were never contemporarily referred to as wearing Dodger Blue, although some now refer to them as representing "True Dodger Blue." The concept of Dodger Blue originated with Manager Tommy Lasorda, who popularized it. Lasorda managed the Los Angeles franchise for many years, and was on the player roster of the Brooklyn Dodgers, though he played for them only very briefly.
The actual blue that the Dodgers currently wear is hex: #005596”
Here’s a couple of pictures of some places that took Dodger Blue home.
Watch the game in style in this game room. Playing pool even in the off season will be a blast as you remember the best season of the year all year around with Dodger Blue walls complete with your favorite team logo.
Share your love of baseball with the kids like these parents did with Dodger Blue colored walls and matching bedsheets. Place pennants and other memorabilia or make your own mural with one of our Preval vFan Airbrush systems in a decor that brings all the fun of the ballgame home.
Sophisticated. Elegant. Serene. While these are not always the things not everyone one might necessarily attribute to a night out at the ballgame, show them you know better. Dodger Blue can be a home run for any bedroom. Look how the Dodgers blue made everything better in this luxurious adult escape to home plate.
I encourage you to join me tonight as I show love to my favorite home team on the West Coast. Stay tuned to our color series as I battle it out with my father’s favorite blue team back in Chicago with more baseball DIY projects coming in the off season.
Whether you’re local and can go out to the ballgame this weekend and root.. root root for the Dodgers or if you’re stuck far away from the live action remember Preval. We’ve got your blues covered. Just grab a Preval Sprayer or Preval vFan Airbrush System, turn your radio on to hear the gospel of Scully while you still can and get that work done like a National League champion.
