Oliver Wendell Tebeau (December 5, 1864 – May 15, 1918) was an American first baseman, third baseman, and manager in Major League Baseball. Tebeau batted and threw right-handed. He was born in St. Louis, Missouri.

Tebeau reached the majors in 1887 with the Chicago White Stockings, spending one year with them before moving to the Cleveland Spiders (1889) and Cleveland Infants (1890). He played again with the Spiders (1891–98) and for the St. Louis Perfectos/Cardinals (1899–1900). His most productive season came in 1893 with the Spiders, when he hit a .329 batting average with 102 RBI.

In a 13-season career, Tebeau was a .279 hitter (1290-for-4618) with 27 home runs and 735 RBI in 1167 games, including 671 runs, 196 doubles, 57 triples, and 164 stolen bases. During his playing career, he posted a 726–583 record managing for the Infants (1890), Spiders (1891–98) and Perfectos/Cardinals (1899–1900).

While the manager of the Spiders in 1894 and 1895, Tebeau managed his older brother George Tebeau, who was an outfielder and first baseman for the Spiders.[1]

Tebeau shot and killed himself in St. Louis, following a period of illness, at the age of 53.
