Alfred W. "Count" Gedney (May 10, 1849 – March 26, 1922), was an American professional baseball player. During four seasons in the National Association of Professional Base Ball Players, 1872 to 1875, he played left field for four teams, the Troy Haymakers, Brooklyn Eckfords, New York Mutuals, and Philadelphia Athletics.
That service makes Gedney a "major leaguer". In 1870 he had been regular left fielder for the Union club of Morrisania, Bronx, one of fifteen professional teams in the old Association during its last season. [Wright 303]
