By that time I was thinking a little about pro ball and hopeful that someone would draft me.

A peacetime draft is the most un-American thing I know.
I'm against the draft. I believe we should have a professional military it might be smaller, but it would be more effective.
Not until the final draft do I force myself to remember that I'm going to have to think about how it will affect other people.
