George E. Tebeau (December 26, 1861 – February 4, 1923) was an outfielder in Major League Baseball who played between 1887 and 1895 for the Cincinnati Red Stockings (1887–1889) and Toledo Maumees (1890) of the American Association and with the Washington Senators (1894) and Cleveland Spiders (1894–1895) of the National League. Tebeau batted and threw right-handed. He was born in St. Louis, Missouri.
Tebeau was the older brother of infielder Patsy Tebeau, who was his teammate while in Cleveland. Nicknamed "White Wings" for his speed, George played over 50 games at all three outfield positions and first base. One of his most productive seasons came in 1889 with Cincinnati, when he hit .252 and posted career-highs in stolen bases (61), RBI (70), runs (110), hits (110) and walks (69). He later became the owner of the Kansas City Blues American Association franchise.
Tebeau died in Denver, Colorado at the age of 61.
