George W. Creamer (1855 – June 27, 1886), born George W. Triebel, was an American Major League Baseball second baseman from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He played with four different teams in two leagues: the Milwaukee Grays (1878), the Syracuse Stars (1879), the Worcester Ruby Legs (18801882), and the Pittsburgh Alleghenys (18831884).[1]

On August 20, 1883, after a game between the Louisville Eclipse and the Alleghenys‚ Creamer and fellow players Billy Taylor and Mike Mansell were each fined $100 and suspended indefinitely for drunkenness.[2] In 1884, he briefly managed the Alleghenys for 8 games, but he lost all the games he oversaw.[1]

Creamer died of tuberculosis in Philadelphia, where he was interred at Greenwood Cemetery.[1][3]
