The Selective Service System enables the United States to maintaininformation on those potentially subject to military conscription. Allmales between the ages of 18 to 25 are required by law to registerwithin 30 days of their 18th birthday. For over 50 years, SelectiveService and the registration requirement for America’s young menhave served as a backup system to provide manpower to the U.S.Armed Forces. The SelectiveService Act of 1917 passedby the 65th United StatesCongress created theSelective Service System.The act gave the Presidentthe power to draft men formilitary service. In 1940,the 76th Congress passedthe Selective Trainingand Service Act of 1940,establishing the firstpeacetime conscription inUnited States history. From1948 to 1973, during bothtimes of war and peace,men were drafted to fillvacancies in the ArmedForces that could not befilled through voluntarymeans. In 1973, the draftended and the UnitedStates converted to anall-volunteer military.Mickey Mantle is knownas one of the greatestbaseball players to ever play the game and holds many records,such as the most World Series homeruns and career “walk-off”(game-winning) homeruns. His magnificent 18-year major-leagueprofessional career all for the New York Yankees, however, wasnot without some controversy. In 1950 Mantle was called back to his native Oklahoma to complete his preinduction physicalexamination for the selective service. Mantle was labeled 4-F, unfitfor service, due to his chronic osteomyelitis (infection in the bone) inhis left leg. During WWII, Americans generally believed that youngmen who seemed physically able were supposed to fulfill theirmilitary obligation and serve their country. That perception causedMantle to endure some public shame and questioning. Mantle hadtwo more medical examinations, in 1951 and 1953. He wasagain rejected for military service, this time because of ligamentdamage he incurred to his right leg during the 1951 World Series.This rejection led to a backlash against Mantle from the crowdsat games, where he was often called a coward and draft dodger.Ernest “Ernie” Banks, moreaffectionately known as“Mr. Cub,” is an AfricanAmerican Major LeagueBaseball player who playedhis entire career with theChicago Cubs (1953–1971).Born in Dallas, Texas, in1931, Banks registeredfor the Selective Servicein 1949 as a student of Booker T. Washington HighSchool when he was 18years old. His draft cardshows he had a scar onhis right cheek and abovehis left eye. Banks servedtwo years in the military,and upon his return playedin the Negro League forthe Kansas City Monarchs.He continued to wage waron the baseball diamondwith the Cubs, hitting acareer 512 homeruns.He also holds the recordfor the most extra-basehits by a Cub with 1,009. It is believed that Banks wastechnically the first African American manager for the MLBwhen in 1973 he had to fill in for Whitey Lockman whohad been ejected, predating Frank Robinson by two years. These were two different men with two very differentSelective Service stories. Despite the differences, both wenton to become two of the greatest baseball players ever,and both were inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
