Do Any Baseball Teams Use Nameplates Anymore?

Nameplates used to be pretty common, but it seems most baseball teams are doing away with them. I think most sports teams outside of the NFL are doing away with them. The only MLB team I can think of that still uses nameplates are the Atlanta Braves. I always thought jerseys looked better WITH nameplates, but here you can see some teams who have changed:

Hmmm, I didn't notice that. I think nameplates do look a little better, but being a Yankees fan, I've gotten so used to seeing the numbers by themselves that any name on the back of a baseball jersey looks a bit weird. I mean, [and maybe it's just the examples posted] the names just look so big in comparison to the number on baseball jerseys that it seems off [as compared to like basketball and football uniforms where the numbers seem to be much bigger in comparison.

The Giants didn't have nameplates in 2010...

yeah they dropped them awhile ago but I had no idea what to search to find old ones so I just searched Bonds and used the photos from last nights games.
