Professional Baseball Player, Manager. A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, he played professional baseball for 12 years. He is best remembered for his years with the Cincinnati Red Stockings as a first baseman and player manager. A bookkeeper by profession, he began playing pro ball in 1866 with the Buckeye Club of the National Association of Base Ball Players. In 1869, he was recruited by Harry Wright to play for the Cincinnati Red Stockings, baseball's first all-professional team. He was the only local player on the club and was known for his defensive skills as a player in the gloveless era. Gould followed Wright to Boston in 1871 and helped the club win the league pennant in 1872 while leading the National Association in triples. He played with the Baltimore Canaries of the National Association in 1874, and then became a player-manager for the New Haven Elm Citys in 1875. The following year, he returned to Cincinnati to manage and play for the Red Stockings in their inaugural season in the National League. In 1877, he continued to play for the ballclub, but relinquished his managerial duties in favor of being a regular player. He did not fare very well as a skipper, posting an overall career record of 11 wins in 88 games. He also umpired a few games in 1874 and 1875. He moved to Long Island, New York, where he later died at his residence in 1917 when he was 69 years old.
