One of the League rules provide that if a game is arranged between a club of that association and an outside club on the latter's ground, and is prevented by rain, the outside organization must pay $50 to the League club, and in case of default no other League club can play the offending party until the $50 is paid. The Chicagos and Rochesters were to have played at Albany, N.Y., on July 20, but it rained, and the game was in consequence prevented. Manager Phillips refused to pay any such sum, and consequently the League clubs have been notified that no more games can be played with the Rochesters until the difficulty is settled.

Coney Island games; early talk of the Polo Grounds

PROFESSIONALS AT CONEY ISLAND.--The managers of the National and Rochester Clubs are arranging to play a series of games on the newly-laid-out ball-field on the Brighton Beach racecourse, three games to be played on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of next week, beginning Aug. 9—the off-days of the races there. They are also arranging to lease the Polo Ground in this city for Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, I which case the Chicago team may play the opening game with the Nationals in New York. The Polo Ground enterprise is the best one, as it will make a beginning for the revival of professional play in this city for 1881. New York Clipper August 7, 1880
