Dodgers unveil raised, 3D helmet logos
The Los Angeles Dodgers are making a uniform change that has never been done before in the majors.
Instead of a flat helmet decal, the Dodgers unveiled a raised, plastic logo that gives a 3D look to the helmet, according to ESPN's Paul Lukas. Like a few other teams, the Dodgers will also move to a matte-finish version of their usual blue helmet.
Team equipment manager Mitch Poole said the club wanted to go in a different direction in terms of uniform creativity.
"We wanted to go with the matte helmet, but we wanted to make it our own," Poole said. "So we thought we'd go with the three-dimensional look."
He added that players had no idea about the helmets until just prior to Tuesday's matinee against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The helmets will be worn for the remainder of the season.
