[reporting the NL meeting of 12/8/1880] ...An increase in the number of penalties, in which forfeiture of membership is concerned, was made, to the extent of including the prohibition of any match games on League grounds on Sunday, or the allowing of any player to participate in any Sunday game during the term of his League service. Also that of prohibiting the sale of beer or spirits on League grounds, or of open betting or pool-selling. Under the revised constitution, any club in the Association found guilty of any violation of either of the above prohibitory rules is liable to immediate expulsion from the League–after due proof of the facts before the Board–on a two-thirds vote of the League championship clubs.
