Location Richmond, VA, United States

The Union Club of Richmond VA is listed in Peverelly [1866]. It may well have formed earlier.

Open issue: Can we confirm that this was the initial VA club? [No, it wasn't even the first Richmond BBC. The first mention I've found in the Richmond newspapers of this club is in the Richmond Dispatch, Oct. 27, 1866--ba]

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.

There were BBCs in Norfolk in 1860, so the Union Club wasn't the first in VA.
