The Baltimore Sun, Feb. 21, 1867, has an article on the MD state baseball convention and lists the clubs sending delegates. Among these was the Enterprize [sic] Club of Baltimore. Same June 3, 1868 has an ad for a meeting of the Enterprise BBC, W. H. Shyrock, president, M.W. Offley, Cor. Sec. 

This club existed as early as 1865. See Chronology. See also The New York Clipper, Aug. 12, 1865, which says the Enterprise Club elected officers on the 31st of July. Elected president was H. Clay Ford, treasurer of the famous Ford's Theatre in D.C. Other officers were connected with the local theatres. Articles says this new club is the consolidation of the old Empire and Peabody clubs.

There was a "colored" Enterprise Club in Baltimore in 1871.
