Major League Baseball, the Philadelphia Phillies and the Philadelphia Police Department have kept hidden a dark secret since 1959. During August 1959 an 18-year-old prostitute came forward with an allegation that she had been solicited by three major leaguers for sex. The sexual contact occurred in the upper floors of the Moonglo Cafe' which was sometimes referred to as a hotel and supper club. One of the establishment's owners had propositioned the young woman, and set up the rendezvous with the athletes. The same man was accused of offering $1,500 to throw a baseball game by one of the Philadelphia Phillies' pitchers, around the same time.--Provided by publisher
