A Los Angeles Dodgers 60th anniversary patch has been unveiled by the team, continuing the celebration of the franchise’s move from Brooklyn in 1958.
According to a Dodgers press release, the focal point of the logo is Los Angeles’ iconic City Hall building, which was the tallest building in the city when the Dodgers moved west in 1958. The Dodgers celebrated their first Opening Day with a ceremony at City Hall and a parade through Los Angeles that ended at the Coliseum, the team’s temporary home from 1958 to 1961 before Dodger Stadium opened in 1962. The ten stars around the logo’s border represent the Dodgers’ 10 National League pennants won in Los Angeles, and include five silver stars to denote their World Series championships since 1958. The stars are six pointed, signifying the Dodgers’ six decades in Los Angeles.
The Dodgers’ anniversary is currently being commemorated at “60 Years in LA” – A Pop-Up Museum Experience presented by Mastercard on the Left Field Reserve, and will continue to be celebrated throughout the 2018 season.
