I have a friend who went to Robert Landsdorp for lessons. I'm wondering if you guys think it would be well worth a trip to San Diego, (i live about 3 1/2 hours away) for a private lesson or something? I've heard he feeds the ball like crazy, and my friend told me he had to hit the ball really flat. Robert Landsdorp likes kids who hit through the ball, and don't use those extreme grips. I don't use any of those, so that's a good plus. Would this be worth a trip? If so, I'll ask my friend about how to contact him. I'm interested so far.
