Henry Monte Beville (February 24, 1875 in Dublin, Indiana - January 24, 1955 in Grand Rapids, Michigan), was a Major League Baseball catcher and first basemen.

Catcher / first baseman Monte Beville played in the American League in 1903-04.

He played for the Milwaukee Brewers in 1905-08. The book The American Association Milwaukee Brewers' has a photo of him with the 1905 team, and says he tied for the team lead in doubles.

Beville almost didn't play for Milwaukee. The April 15, 1905 issue of Sporting Life indicates that he was claimed by Kansas City and when awarded to Milwaukee went to play (at first) for Harrisburg instead.

Monte started in the minors as early as 1896 and was with Toledo in 1900 and Kansas City in 1901.
