Dodgers show off home white unis in Australia

SYDNEY -- Although they were the visiting team, the Dodgers broke with baseball tradition on Sunday and wore their home white uniforms.

Lon Rosen, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, said the club received permission from MLB to display what he called "our very recognizable uniform."

"This is all for baseball and the fans here," Rosen said.

Longtime equipment manager Mitch Poole said it was the first time he could remember the Dodgers wearing white uniforms on the road. Both games at Sydney Cricket Ground were designated as Arizona home games.
