Charles Alston "Pussy" Tebeau (February 22, 1870 – March 25, 1950) was a right fielder in Major League Baseball who played briefly for the Cleveland Spiders during the 1895 season. Tebeau batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Some report that he is the younger brother of George and Patsy Tebeau who also played in the major leagues, but that is unlikely. The actual brothers grew up in St. Louis while Charles was Massachusetts born and bred.
Tebeau's major league career only lasted two games in July 1895 because he had already signed with the Portland club but failed to report. The Cleveland Spiders picked up and used Tebeau without knowledge of this. Portland's manager Frank Leonard saw his name in the newspaper (referred to as C.A. Tebeau) with Cleveland and filed a complaint. Before signing with Portland, Tebeau played for Lowell in the New England Association.
Tebeau died in Pittsfield, Massachusetts at the age of 80.
