Darren Daulton "Had Positive Results" In Recent MRI In Brain Cancer Battle

Section 215-A Philadelphia City Sports Blog

Lost in all the Grammy and Pro-Bowl festivities last night, was a much more important update on former Phillies catcher and 97.5 The Fanatic host Darren Daulton’s battle with Brain Cancer.

Back in July of last year, “Dutch” was diagnosed with what was called “an aggresive form of brain cancer”, after having two tumors successfully removed in surgery.

A fan favorite, Daulton was a key cog in the team’s 1993 pennant run, both with his on the field play, and leadership in the clubhouse. I got a chance to meet “Dutch” a couple of years ago at a Phillies game, and he was one of the nicest and most fan-welcoming MLB players that I have ever met. Certainly the Phillies community, and everyone here at Section 215, hopes that this is a step in the right direction for “Dutch”.
