Daniel, Baseball in Richmond, says that in Oct. 1866 the Pastimes played the National of DC before 4000 fans at the "fair grounds." Pastimes lost 76-19. President of the Pastimes was Alexander G. Babcock, a player on prewar NYC teams who had moved to VA and served as a Sergeant in the Confederate army. The Pastimes toured MD in Sept. 1867, playing the local teams.
Bill Hicklin notes this club was captained by Alexander Babcock of the Richmond Club, and was Richmond's all-star club. The Pastimes lost a game played for the Virginia championship on July 2, 1867, beaten by the University of Virginia's Monticello Club, 53-25.

Win/Loss Records As Far As We Now Know
Warning: Users should not rely on a team's won-loss record as a reflection of its "standing" among all base ball clubs. Team schedules were not balanced, and a good record against mostly weak opponents does not signify a leading club.
