Baseball Hall Study Says Athlete Steroid Use May Encourage Teens

A National Baseball Hall of Fame- funded survey found 66 percent of Americans believe that hearing about steroid use by professional athletes encourages adolescents to take performance-enhancing drugs.

The Hall of Fame had one of its most scrutinized votes this year, with Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds both snubbed, adding Major League Baseball’s two most-decorated players to the list of retired All-Stars bypassed because of links to doping. Cyclist Lance Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles last year after acknowledging he used performance enhancers.
