Los Angeles Dodgers at Tampa Bay Devil Rays

The Dodgers dressed as the 1955 Champion Brooklyn Dodgers. According to Bill Henderson, the Dodgers:

"dressed in complete flannel uniforms by Ebbetts Field Flannels, however the last uniform to have the Brooklyn script on the front was in 1945. The team knew, but wanted the jerseys to celebrate Brooklyn anyway"

The Devil Rays dressed as the minor league St. Pete Saints from the same year. Henderson further notes that both teams wore flannel, and that:

"while MLB TBTC games have become popular and even rather common, on-field uniforms made of real flannel have become rather rare, as the teams opt for the old styles sewn in double-knit fabric."
