    Pros are developed at Player's Edge. They have experienced trainers spanning from years of playing at different levels and coaching players from youth through pro. There's a reason why this organization build teams and athletes that are nationally ranked. Two coaches that standout are Lou Colon and Dan Gilligan. Dan has perfected the art of hitting and during our time with him, he was able to correct my boys' mechanics taking them to the next level in a short period of time. As for Lou, words can not express what he means to the development of our boys. Lou is the total package and our go to guy. Not only is he one of the best fielding coaches in the whole area, but he truly understands how to get the most out of young athletes. He fully invests and truly cares about the betterment of the young players. Helping them become the best athlete and person they can be. With Lou, players learn the professional way to play baseball.

    Lu has a great relationship with my son. The individualized instruction has elevated his play to the next level. I see a real difference in my son's at bats when he is training with Lu. Can't wait to get the little one started as well!!
