Monty Montgomery

Monty Montgomery pitched at the major league level and for the Royals from 1971-1972, finishing with a lifetime mark of 6-3 and an impressive 2.78 ERA. Montgomery, a 6-3 right hander, was the 9th round selection of Kansas City in the 1968 amateur draft. He recently joined Dave O to go back in time and reminisce about his days with the Royals, from High Point-Thomasville to Elimira, Omaha to Kansas City. A charming southern gentleman with a great story – one you won’t soon forget. (Photo Courtesy Kansas City Royals)

  1. For whatever it’s worth, I was a young teen in the early 70’s, and I do remember Monty. In fact, I can name any Royal from the ’69 roster on up to the playoff years because that’s when I realized KC had it’s “own” team, and I embraced them, win or lose. And those early years remain most memorable since that was originally when I discovered the Royals. God bless Monty–what an honest and heartfelt interview of a “forgotten” Royal.

    And to Dave O—this is a great idea. Keep up the great work, it’s very much appreciated by original Royal fans like myself. I have a suggestion in mind as well–the guy before George at 3B, Paul Schaal–if possible. Many thanks also goes to Max Rieper from RR for directing me to this site. I look forward to more interviews in the future. Many thanks, Dave.
