Best Answer

Newspapers dating back to 1912 and possibly farther, have numerous sports articles where the sports writers of the time would refer to the Brooklyn National League Baseball Club as the "DODGERS". The name actually became OFFICIAL during a meeting at Ebbets Field where the PRESS had been gathered to VOTE on an official team name. There were a few names that were discussed, but the name DODGERS was clearly the choice. The name DODGERS first appeared on the jersey in 1932 in BLOCK FONT style. In 1938, the DODGERS SCRPIT style font replaced the block style. With a few variations here and there over the years, the scrpt style has remained the same for 80 plus years.
