Darren Daulton Passes Away at Age 55

It is with a heavy heart that I heard that Darren “Dutch” Daulton passed away today at age 55. Daulton, who was inducted to the Phillies Wall of Fame in 2010, was originally diagnosed with glioblastoma in 2013.

He recovered and made a triumphant return to Spring Training in 2015. I was there that day.  He had looked like a new man and he strode proudly onto the field while fans called out to him. (You can read my article about that day HERE.)

I will always keep this picture of him in my mind and hope that he rests in peace now that his long fight against cancer is over.


Tribute to Jim Fregosi

At today’s game, the Phillies and braves paid tribute to their late manager and scout, respectively.

Before the game, his family took to the field while Braves president john Schuerholz and Phillies president David Montgomery spoke.
