Albert Daniel George Kenders (born April 4, 1937) is an American former professional baseball player. A catcher, he played for eight seasons (1956–1963) in the Philadelphia Phillies' farm system, with a ten-game, 23-at bat Major League trial for the 1961 Phillies. He batted and threw right-handed, stood 6 feet (1.8 m) tall and weighed 185 pounds (84 kg) as an active player.
In 1961, Kenders started four games at catcher for the Phillies after a mid-season recall from the Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts. In his second game, he recorded his first MLB hit, a single off pitcher Jack Curtis of the Chicago Cubs. He would notch only three more hits during his Major League service, with the only extra-base blow, a double, coming off future Baseball Hall of Fame southpaw Warren Spahn on August 20, 1961.
