America has steadily regressed from a Republic under the Sign of the Cross towards a mobacracy under the Sign of the Scorpion. Social responsibility and the ethics of conscience have vacated the Field of Dreams like a Baroid tater -- an “all about me” cult of celebrity has evolved. Reclaiming the Strike Zone traces the metaphorical cleat marks through “forbidden” history. The Inside Baseball version of the Soviet Socialist Paradise and Nazi Germany is pitched “shekel free.” Sub-systems of the American superstructure featuring education, entertainment, youth activities and family are explored in-depth. The search for something that has been lost -- the secret of the American Dream and American Exceptionalism -- is pursued. All base paths lead to the Christian Church and Jewish Nation. Wise Christian philosophy has been Billy-Goated off the playing field -- secular humanism has taken The Hill. Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud have taken a turn at-bat and gone long. Red tide has been harnessed into Economic Determinism by the F&F Boys. The hidden ball trick has been pulled on the sheeple. Disciples of General Zod lack American patriotism. Time is of the essence to restore what has been taken -- it’s the bottom of the 9th with two away. DO IT AMERICAN and “don’t give up the ship” are battle cries. Intellectual Millenials must step up to the plate and reclaim what their baby booming Spock baby parents baptized in Dewey waters booted. Identifying the proton pseudos and resetting is the task. Restoring sub-systems [especially education] while playing small ball is the answer. Truth and patriotic leadership are catalysts. A burning desire to be an American -- free and independent -- without getting JFK’d is the secret. There is a happy ending -- it is certain. The Good News delivers that promise.

Victor Alexander Baltov Jr. is an intellectual hardball writer seasoned in both secular and Supernatural historical realms. Reclaiming the Strike Zone is the finale of the Baseball Is America trilogy positing baseball as the absolute grid through which everything can be interpreted. Sabermetrics methodology of an old ballplayer formulates theories and conclusions. The knowing eye derives from experience gained as a lifetime baseball player viewing the entire playing field. Blunt, cynical and opinionated rhetoric is his trademark. It is self-evident that the writing style exemplifies Gentile frankness and honesty. It has elements of famous Middle Ages Catholic Italian poet, Dante Alighieri, boldness of St. Paul the Apostle and Bishop von Galen of Munster, strategic depth of Alexander the Great, existential mindset of Viktor Frnkl and sarcastic frankness of Niccolo Machiavelli. Baseball-speak ignites pitch recognition of the Inside Baseball version of world history and American culture. Deep-seated patriotism and an unwavering desire for social justice through equal justice derive from devoted parents -- a mother that worked for FDR and a father born into the Jewish Bolshevik Revolution in St. Petersburg who grew up under Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin and fought Hitler and Stalin in WWII. The Catholic/Christian manly behavior of the Arthurian Knights and Robin Hood form his character. Real estate brokerage provides a business perspective of lawyerball and the corporate philosophy. Hobbies have included baseball, football, fishing, surfing, boating, golf, tennis, running, kayaking, walking, water and snow skiing, and handy man projects. A lifetime goal is to always fight the good fight, finish the race, keep the faith -- stand firm on principle and don’t give up the ship. Healthy debate from “all” takers is a standing challenge.
