Hall-of-Famers Hank Aaron and Jim Palmer teamed up yesterday in the fight against drug abuse, working with the Department of Health and Human Services and Little League Baseball Inc. to produce a 10-minute anti-drug film that will be distributed to Little Leaguers nationwide early next year.

The film is one of two by Little League, which hopes to have an anti-drug package ready for its estimated two million participants by February 1991. The first film, already completed, features Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Orel Hershiser.

Hershiser's film is targeted for youngsters; the Aaron-Palmer film is aimed at adults. The film features Palmer, Aaron and a group of adults discussing the dangers of substance abuse.

"It's up to people like myself and Jim to make sure they know that you don't have to do {drugs} to become a star," said Aaron, baseball's all-time home run leader.

"I have two daughters," said Palmer, the second former Little Leaguer after Carl Yastrzemski to make the Hall of Fame, "and you're constantly wondering whether they're going to succumb to peer pressure. A lot of it is that the kids don't know what they're getting into. . . . If you can reach the parents, sometimes it might get them involved."

"I think an important part of the message is that drug use is not glamorous," Secretary of Health and Human Services Louis Sullivan said. "There has been this myth developed that to be successful, accepted and popular, you should smoke or drink."
