PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL STRENGTH & CONDITIONING COACHES SOCIETY STEPS UP TO PARTNER WITH HOOTON FOUNDATION

PBSCCS WILL ENDORSE AND FINANCIALLY SUPPORT THF’s EDUCATION

MISSION WITH SPONSORSHIP OF “ALL ME®” T-SHIRTS           

 

McKinney, Texas (Thursday, February 20, 2020) – The Taylor Hooton Foundation announced today its continued national partnership with the Professional Baseball Strength & Conditioning Society (PBSCCS) which will endorse—as well as financially support—the Foundation’s mission of enlightening people to the truth about Appearance and Performance Enhancing Substances.  

“It is tremendously gratifying to know the Foundation and its education efforts have the full support of these outstanding strength and conditioning coaches who are at the highest level of professional sports,” said Taylor Hooton Foundation President Donald Hooton. “Working closely with major-league players, the strength and conditioning coaches will bring a unique perspective to our message that young people can achieve all of their physical goals by doing things the right way without the use of performance enhancing drugs.”

Said PBSCCS President Matthew Krause: “As strength and conditioning coaches who work to keep elite athletes in top physical condition, this is a perfect partnership for us. Like the Taylor Hooton Foundation, we, too, believe that success can be achieved without the use of Appearance and Performance Enhancing Substances. We’re proud to be a part of the Foundation’s educational initiatives.”

As part of the partnership, the PBSCCS will—for the third straight year—sponsor the Foundation’s ALL ME® T-shirts which will be distributed during Spring Training and worn by MLB’s strength and conditioning coaches as well as by major-league players. In 2019, a record 42 players stepped up to serve as role models and be members of the Foundation’s MLB “Advisory Board.”

With the PBSCCS logo and basbaseballstrength.org on the left sleeve, the T-shirts will feature the Foundation’s trademarked “ALL ME” branding—as well as its 2020 message “No Shortcut to Home Plate”—on the front. The back of the shirt will display the motivational quote “I Stand with the Taylor Hooton Foundation” along with the Foundation’s logo and #ALLMEPEDFREE.

The sponsorship of the T-shirts will help to underwrite the Taylor Hooton Foundation’s annual tour of spring-training camps for meetings with its MLB “Advisory Board” members.  This will help the Foundation to deliver additional education programs across the United States.

To date, the Taylor Hooton Foundation has spoken to and educated over two-million people. It has a Latin American outreach and travels throughout the Caribbean, speaking to thousands of RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities) athletes, coaches and parents in partnership with Major League Baseball. Additionally, the THF introduced a new eLearning program in 2014 – narrated by Bob Costas – to Little League Baseball that is offered to its one-million adult coaches and other volunteers.
