Dodger blue is a rich bright tone of the color azure 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.[2] The web color is not used in the Dodgers' uniform but rather resembles the lighter blue used throughout Dodger Stadium.

  • ✪ CSUN Notable Alumni - Mark Langill: Team Historian for the Los Angeles Dodgers

Transcription

♪♪ ((Music)) ♪♪ A lot of people wonder how do you become a team historian. If you don’t hit the ball in little league, you’re well on your way to being a team historian. I’m Mark Langill graduated from Cal State Northridge class of 1988, with a degree in journalism. I am a publications editor and the team historian for the Los Angeles Dodgers. When I was at Cal State Northridge, I knew that I was going to be on the school paper. But the very first day Cynthia Rawitch really set the tone because from day one you really knew that she cared about the students but she also had great expectations. She didn’t act like it was a school newspaper; she treated us like we were pros. I remember Gary Klein, who now covers USC football for the LA Times, said “Hey you ought to call up so and so at the LA Times and see if you can get an internship.” And I thought I am just in my first semester at Northridge, it’s got to be harder than that. I called up the times, and I got a clerk position. Just like that! The culture of the other students that had gone through the program or were going through the program were very supportive of one another, but also very good as far as giving advice. I saw that the Dodgers had hired something called the Public Relations Director, and he was only 24 years old. It was the first time I had ever identified with a job. That’s something that I’d like to do. I started in the front office in 1994. They didn’t have a team historian before 2002, eventually they said, “You know what you seem to know all this miscellaneous stuff, let’s call you team historian." We keep track of all the former players. And, so we coordinate anniversaries, keep in touch with alumni, and anything historical relating to the franchise that goes back to the 1880’s. I’ve had the opportunity to write five books about the Dodgers. Just imagine sifting through thousands of photos trying to put them in certain slots and when you’re working on things like that that’s fun. I’ve been very very lucky to be able to do those type of projects. If anybody has been to dodger stadium, and they look on the big screen, I do have 50th anniversary moments. It’s kind of funny to hear my voice on the stadium P.A. system. You know I will be walking down the hall and I’m like , uh –oh they’re putting it on. Ha Ha The most important thing I can do is as team historian is to help the fans appreciate the history and if I can help them either with their jobs, or with their memories, or their trip to Dodger stadium. That’s really the role that I feel that the team historian should be. At Dodger stadium people who are gonna interview for a job, I don’t necessarily look at where they went to school or anything like that. Sometime it’s just the basics. Do they look you in the eye? You want to say this is what I really want to do. All of my years of schooling have led to this point. In 1990 I interviewed for this dream job, and I finished second. And a couple years later it opened up again. And the person interviewing me said, “What makes you think that you’re going to want to stay here, because we just hired somebody and they left two years later. How do we know that’s not going to happen with you?” And I wasn’t being flippant or anything like that, but I said, “If you had hired me in the first place, you wouldn’t have this problem." Don’t be afraid to convey that emotion. If you really love something then you should pursue that interest.

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 originated with Tommy Lasorda who popularized it with his saying "Cut me and I'll bleed Dodger blue."[3] Lasorda managed the Los Angeles franchise for 20 years, and was on the player roster of the Brooklyn Dodgers, though he played for them only very briefly.

In 1989, the team’s famous Dodger blue was added to a color database. Paul Raveling, a software engineer who in 1989 was working at the Information Sciences Institute at USC, had been “tuning” colors to be properly displayed on computer monitors.[4] He proposed a major update to the list of color names that were supported by the X11 user interface system, including one called “dodgerblue.” Eventually, that list of colors would be incorporated into web browsers, which allow programmers writing HTML or CSS to type a color name instead of a code.

Uniform color

Dodger Blue (web color)
#1E90FF

Dodger Blue (uniforms)
#005A9C

The actual blue that the Dodgers currently wear is RGB-hex #005A9C.[1][5] Regarding the web color's RGB values, Paul Raveling notes that Tom "The color tuning was done on HP monitors and the colors turned out very good then. The catch is that since then, monitors seemed to have standardized on different gamma corrections."[4] The current standard RGB color space was defined in 1996, seven years after “dodgerblue.”
