[Maryland vs. Enterprise of Baltimore 9/15/1868] [Maryland won 33-16] ...our Baltimore correspondent says:–“It is reported throughout the city that the game was sold by several members of the Enterprise Club to parties interested in the Maryland, but as yet nothing satisfactory has been proven, although your correspondent was informed by three of the Enterprise nine that various amounts, from $300 to $500, had been offered them the night previous by several parties interested in the other club. Some prominent players of the Enterprise are suspected, and an investigation is now getting on before the directors of the club, the result of which, will all papers and names, will be transmitted to you. Circumstances are very strong, and the belief is general throughout the city that members were bought. The whole transaction has brought base ball playing into bad repute here. As a matter of course, the Enterprise Club is completely disorganized, and they will not visit New York and Philadelphia as anticipated. Part of the bets on that game have been held over until the results of the investigation are known.
