You would think some 'ace' reporter would have posed this question to him by now. I haven't seen such an interview.
I think it's about time we start singing the praises of Ryan Jackson. I believe he is the same guy responsible for helping Chris Heisey and Dave Sappelt as well. Dude knows what he is doing in the hitting/teaching arena.
