Dodger blue is a shade of the color blue 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. Confusingly, it is not the actual shade of blue worn by the Dodgers. It bears a much closer resemblance to the lighter blue used throughout Dodger Stadium.

History

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. During his 20-year tenure as manager of the Dodgers, Lasorda piloted them to 8 division titles, 4 National League pennants, and 2 World Series championships in 1981 & 1988. Lasorda was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1997.
