The Dodgers’ сlearned their lesson, and a new logo was designed for the team. A team slogan for the new era? Not quite, but a new all-time highs logo is certainly a big first step.

BASEBALL

From the 1940s through the mid-1950s, the Dodgers developed a fierce cross-town rivalry with the New York Yankees as the two clubs faced each other in the World Series seven times, with the Dodgers losing the first five matchups before defeating them to win the franchise's first title in 1955. It was also during this period that the Dodgers made history by breaking the baseball color line in 1947 with the debut of Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to play in the Major Leagues since 1884. In 1941, the Dodgers captured their third National League pennant, only to lose to the New York Yankees. This marked the onset of the Dodgers–Yankees rivalry, as the Dodgers would face them in their next six World Series appearances. Led by Jackie Robinson, the first black Major League Baseball player of the modern era; and three-time National League Most Valuable Player Roy Campanella, also signed out of the Negro leagues, the Dodgers captured their first World Series title in 1955 by defeating the Yankees for the first time, a story notably described in the 1972 book The Boys of Summer.

This event was the harbinger of the integration of professional sports in the United States, the concomitant demise of the Negro leagues, and is regarded as a key moment in the history of the American Civil Rights Movement. Robinson was an exceptional player, a speedy runner who sparked the team with his intensity. He was the inaugural recipient of the Rookie of the Year award, which is now named the Jackie Robinson Award in his honor. The Dodgers' willingness to integrate, when most other teams refused to, was a key factor in their 1947–1956 success. They won six pennants in those 10 years with the help of Robinson, three-time MVP Roy Campanella, Cy Young Award winner Don Newcombe, Jim Gilliam and Joe Black. Robinson would eventually go on to become the first African-American elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

(3) Illustration: Drawing or design which also includes word(s)/ letter(s)/number(s). The mark consists of a smiling cartoon hot dog character with an arm reaching out to catch a baseball that is floating in the air. The hot dog character is wearing a baseball glove on the hand that is reaching out to catch the baseball and a plain glove on the other hand. The hot dog character is in a hot dog bun and is also wearing a baseball uniform on its arms and legs, as well as baseball cleats on its feet, and a baseball cap with the interlocking letters LA on its head.

The billowy script Dodgers in an alluring angle and a blue so distinctive that it has come to bear the name of the team. The red numbers that pop, as if dropped straight from the heart to the left upper abdomen. The interlocking LA on the sleeve, matching the simple-but-distinctive blue caps. All of these elements combine to make the Dodgers' home white somehow shine a little bit brighter. It is a timeless, trimless look, baseball's accouterment answer to the American flag.
