The Los Angeles Dodgers will wear 1940s style uniforms at six mid-week day games this season, with the first game this Thursday against the Atlanta Braves at 12:10 p.m.
The Cubs will wear their Brooklyn-era throwback jerseys at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday, May 4, the Reds on Wednesday, June 15, the Tigers on Wednesday, June 22 and the Padres on Wednesday, August 31.
The Dodgers' game-worn, autographed throwback jerseys will be auctioned off to benefit the Dodgers Dream Foundation.
The 1940s jersey was the winner of a fan vote deciding which retro jersey the Dodgers would wear this season. Nearly 50,000 votes were cast at dodgers.com with the winning uniform edging out the 1911 road uniform by less than 2,000 votes.
Though the original uniform worn in the 1940s was made of a highly reflective satin fabric to make it more visible under the lights for night games, the throwback jerseys will maintain a similar feel as those worn by the Dodgers throughout the 2011 season.
The last time the Dodgers wore a throwback uniform was June 23, 2007 in Tampa Bay as part of a ''Turn Back the Clock Night'' honoring former Dodger player and Rays coach Don Zimmer. That night, the Dodgers wore replica 1955 Brooklyn road uniforms.
Opposing teams will also wear throwback jerseys when the Dodgers are wearing theirs.
