A study from Marist College will reveal where the nation stands on baseball's performance-enhancing drug perdicament. 

In light of the MLB's decision to suspend Ryan Braun, the Marist Poll and the Marist College Center of Sports Communication conducted a national survey and asked sports fans two questions about how they feel about PED usage in baseball.

The first question asks whether or not players linked to clinics that provide PEDs, such as Biogenesis, should be suspended, even if they did not fail a drug test. The second question asks if players who used PEDs should receive eligibility for the Hall of Fame.

The results of the study will be released at noon on Tuesday and will provide a detailed analysis of the survey results.
