The Monarchs joined the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League in 1999, and were originally based in Monroe, MI.

Like other Summer Collegiate Baseball teams, the Lake Erie Monarchs are dedicated and designed to providing higher level competition for NCAA players that wish to continue on into professional baseball. The Monarchs operate in a similar manner to a Minor League team: playing nightly in stadiums before fans, using wood bats and minor league specification equipment, and experiencing road trips between games. Like all other summer collegiate players, the Monarchs are unpaid in order to maintain their NCAA eligibility, and live with host families in the same manner as Single A and Independent League players.

In their short existence,the Lake Erie Monarchs have made many accomplishments including: In 2001, the Monarchs played a game at Tiger Stadium in Detroit, MI. and in 2004 and 2006 the Monarchs made a twelve game tour of Alaska as guest members of the Alaska Baseball League. All the while the Monarchs have maintained a ticket price under $5.
