The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown will collaborate with the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society and the Taylor Hooton Foundation to commission a national survey that will measure public understanding on the use of appearance and performance-enhancing substances, including anabolic steroids, among young people.

The groundbreaking survey, to be designed and managed by the University of Massachusetts-Boston, with assistance from the Gallup organization, is the first initiative of a new association among the Hall of Fame, PBATS and THF that will provide educational programs to inform young athletes, parents and coaches of the dangers of performance-enhancing substances through events around the country.
