Former Phillie Darren Daulton has two brain tumors

Former Philadelphia Phillies All-Star catcher Darren Daulton has been diagnosed with two brain tumors.

According to the Associated Press, he has surgery scheduled for next week. After playing almost his entire career in Philadelphia, Daulton returned to the city and hosted 97.5 The Fanatic’s Talking Baseball with Dutch for the last four years.

97.5 The Fanatic released a statement about Daulton’s situation:

“Darren Daulton has not been feeling well over the past two weeks. He went to the doctor who discovered two brain tumors and is scheduled for surgery early next week. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this difficult time. Of course we want to respect his privacy at a time like this, but if you would like to send him get well wishes you may do so at dutch@975thefanatic.com.”

“Dutch,” as Daulton was called, was always known as a very tough player, and his toughness will surely be important in the difficult times ahead. The Phillies, via Philly.com, released the following statement by President David Montgomery:

“We’re saddened by the news about Darren. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this time,” said Montgomery. “We, along with our fans, are praying for a full recovery.”

We all send all of our thoughts and prayers to Darren Daulton and all his friends and family and hope the surgery and recovery are both successful.
