George Anthony Rensa (September 29, 1901 – January 4, 1987) was an MLB Catcher who played for the New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago White Sox. He batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Parsons, Pennsylvania and died in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

"Tony" made a full career out of playing baseball. His pro career stretched from 1925 to 1949, a period of 25 seasons. Rensa's minor league career took him to many towns, often in the East. He played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Fort Worth Panthers, the Milwaukee Brewers, the Albany Senators, the Dallas Steers, the Little Rock Travelers and others.

He was in the majors for six years, always as a catcher, appearing for four different teams. Most of his at-bats came with the Chicago White Sox from 1937 to 1939. While with the Yankees in 1933, Tony wore uniform #10, later retired for Phil Rizzuto.

In 200 games over six seasons, Tony posted a .261 batting average (134-for-514), and defensively, he recorded a .965 fielding percentage as a catcher.

He also managed for several seasons in the minors.
