96-year-old Miller Park usher relishes in postseason play

A legend around the Brewers organization has never taken the field, instead he just shows you to your seat. Lou Montgomery is 96-years-old and has no plans of stopping his job for The Crew.

A warm smile and high fives are a staple from Lou Montgomery.

“I come here for the baseball but the people are good, good,” said Montgomery.

Montgomery, in his quick wit, said he is not just another pretty face he is here to work.

He has been with the Brewers has been for more than three decades. The 96-year-old uses a cane and sits on a stool but not much is slowing him down.

“I have been here every game this season,” said Montgomery.

And what a season not to miss. Montgomery said he was once a Cubs fan because he grew up in southern Indiana listening to them on the radio. When he moved to Milwaukee in the 60s he eventually became a Brewers fan and never looked back.

“I don’t want them to win anymore than every game that they play,” said Montgomery.

But since he was slightly late to the Brewer fandom he missed the Milwaukee Braves 1957 World Series run. He hopes they can make that up this year.

“It’s...more than a dream. I really would like to see that happen,” said Montgomery.
