“…In times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that does not exist” said Eric Hoffer. We live in a fascinating age: the information age. An age where information is the new gold and information is changing the world in fractions of seconds. Starting from communication, to learning; then to the field training, technology is taking over.  The things that took years to do are nowadays done at a tap on a phone screen. A few years ago, I could never figure out how training can be aided by phone applications or how pitching skills could be evaluated by machines. But today, such things are real. Sadly, many people are often reluctant to embrace such changes. Thus, this conservative notion makes them well equipped to inherit the type of softball that is slowly becoming extinct.
