Babe Ruth almost played for what team? There is a correct answer.?

It is well documented and known by the average baseball fan the historic Red Sox/Yankees career of one George "BABE" Ruth. Even his brief stint in the Minors with the Baltimore Orioles, his swan song with the Boston Braves and his coaching career with the Dodgers are common knowledge with die hard fans.... show more It is well documented and known by the average baseball fan the historic Red Sox/Yankees career of one George "BABE" Ruth. Even his brief stint in the Minors with the Baltimore Orioles, his swan song with the Boston Braves and his coaching career with the Dodgers are common knowledge with die hard fans. The Babe was shopped by Orioles owner Jack Dunn to Philadelphia Athletics, but Connie Mack was not interested. The Cincinnati Reds and New York Giants both showed interest at an undisclosed amount, but the Ruth was sold to the Boston Red Sox. The sale between the Orioles and the Red Sox occured in July 1914 and sent the Babe and 2 teammates to the Red Sox for 25 Thousand dollars. But, do you know what other team could have easily bought the Babe's services for 18 Thousand dollars, this sale was for Ruth alone, just a month earlier (June 1914)?
Update: @Fungo....Really good guess, but according to everything I have read, The Orioles were interested in dealing with the Terrapins, but the Terrapins denied any interest in Ruth because of his contract/obligations with Dunn?
