Ex-Phillie Daulton diagnosed with 2 brain tumors
PHILADELPHIA -- Former All-Star catcher Darren Daulton has been diagnosed with two brain tumors and will undergo surgery next week.
Daulton, who played 14½ of his 15 seasons for the Philadelphia Phillies, has hosted "Talking Baseball with Dutch" at 97.5 The Fanatic the last four years.
The station released a statement Thursday saying Daulton, after not feeling well the past two weeks, saw a doctor who made the discovery.
Daulton was a key part of the Phillies' NL championship team in 1993. He finished his career with the 1997 World Series champion Florida Marlins.
