Monty Bryson Montgomery (born September 1, 1946 in Albemarle, North Carolina) is a retired American Major League Baseball pitcher from Albemarle, North Carolina who appeared in 12 games for the Kansas City Royals between 1971 and 1972. A right-hander, he stood 6 feet 3 inches (1.91 m) atll and weighed 200 pounds (91 kg).
Montgomery was drafted by the Royals in the ninth round of the 1968 Major League Baseball Draft out of Pfeiffer University. Recalled from the minor leagues by Kansas City in September 1971, he appeared in three games, two as a starting pitcher, in the season's final weeks — and won all three of them. In 1972, he started and finished the season in the Majors, while playing most of the campaign for the Triple-A Omaha Royals. However, on September 7, 1972, he threw his only MLB complete game and shutout, a four-hit, 6–0 blanking of the California Angels at Municipal Stadium.
