The Boston Red Sox have used Amtrak to or from New York on several occasions in recent years, including at least one Acela charter (although I don't know if that was a special train or just private cars on a scheduled run). And I believe that the Baltimore Orioles have also used Amtrak to get to New York for some Yankees series.

Sort of ironic too, since the NBA is such a glamorous and image-conscious sport that they'd even consider train travel on the road. Of course, if the Chicago Bulls ever played the Milwaukee Bucks for the conference title, they could always travel on Amtrak's Hiawatha. Ok, so it's a stretch, but yet, I dare to dream...
