The uniforms made a re-appearance in May 2011 when the two teams again competed against one another. Likewise, the Braves sported the Black Crackers' jerseys in a game against the Detroit Tigers on April 27, 2013. The jerseys made their most recent appearance when the Braves met the San Francisco Giants on May 3, 2014.
