An intrasquad match of the Pioneer BBC of Portland was played on the evening of Friday, August 3, 1866.
The results were published in the Morning Oregonian on the following day.

It appears there were only enough players for 8 to a side. Robert Law (future delegate to the National Association) captained the Fielding Nine, while club Treasurer Joseph Steele captained the Batting Nine. The Fielding Nine held an early 7-2 lead but were down 16-9 after 4 innings. An 8-run, 7th inning rally made things exciting, but the Batting Nine matched their late scoring and held on to win 28-24.

The reporter concludes that, "the Pioneers can safely challenge any similar organization for a match, and be almost sure of winning, with picked players."
