Eddie Luna

Baseball & Softball Instructor

  • Softball & Baseball Hitting
  • Baseball Pitching
  • Softball & Baseball Defense Includes Catching

"Coach Eddie" as the kids call him, has been with The Hitting Zone from day one. He has worked with many kids from the leagues in the surrounding area. Eddie is a product of Paramount High School, Harbor College, CSU Dominguez Hills and was a member of the 1987 Connie Mack National Champion.

After being away from the game for a short time to focus on his career, Coach Eddie has returned to the game at a higher level as a coach. He has gained additional knowledge working baseball camps along side major league players and coaches such as Chad Kreuter, Shawn Greene, Chan Ho Park, Tom Gamboa and former USC and current UC Irvine coach Mike Gilespie.

The most important aspect Coach Eddie brings to the table is that he understands the learning process. As a former teacher and principal, it is important to know that each student learns differently. It is the teacher's responsibility to find out how to get through to each student to get the desired results. Eddie has this ability and knows how to apply it to the games of baseball and softball for all ages and skill levels.

Whether it's hitting, pitching, catching or fielding or the ballplayer is 4 or 24, it really matters to Coach Eddie that the player gets better and has fun while working hard.
