The Los Angeles Dodgers are sporting replicas of the powder blue satin 1944 Brooklyn Dodgers alternate uniforms for all of their weekday afternoon home games this season.

The Cubs will wear replicas of their sharp 1944 away uniforms in Wednesday afternoon's game at Dodger Stadium.

The Cubs last sported this version of the road uniform (circa 1948) for a game against the Philadelphia Phillies on June 21,1992. The highlight of that game came on Cubs starting pitcher Mike Morgan's opening delivery to Len Dykstra in the bottom of the first. Morgan went into an old-school windmill windup that cracked Harry Caray up.
