Montero, who is remembered for many clutch postseason moments for the Cubs, played at Wrigley Field from 2015-2017. In Game 1 of the 2016 National League Championship Series, Montero had the pinch-hit grand slam that helped elevate Chicago over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Then in Game 7 of the World Series, Montero came off the bench and had the eighth and final RBI versus Cleveland to propel the Cubs to World Series Champions.
A former South Bend Silver Hawks player, Montero called South Bend home in the 2004 Midwest League season, where he played 115 games for Mark Haley's club. Montero hit .263 with 11 home runs and 59 RBI as a then Arizona Diamondbacks prospect.
