Daulton, nicknamed “Dutch”, played Major League Baseball for the Philadelphia Phillies for fourteen years. In 1997, Daulton was traded to the Florida Marlins where he earned a World Series ring to end his career in baseball. Daulton completed his career as a three-time National League All-Star and earned the distinction of winning the 1992 Silver Slugger Award. Daulton was also named the National League RBI leader that year. In 2010, The Phillies inducted Daulton into the Philadelphia Baseball Wall of Fame.

Love, life, fight are three words that best describe Daulton to his fans. Daulton was a man that was easy to love, to respect and to admire. He had a genuine passion for people.

In 2013, Daulton was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (“GBM”), the most aggressive form of brain cancer. Rather than giving into the disease, Daulton sought to help others by forming The Darren Daulton Foundation. The Foundation helps patient’s pay medical and personal expenses who cannot afford to pay them because of the effects of brain cancer.

Daulton fought a tremendous battle with brain cancer but eventually the disease took his life on August 6, 2017. He epitomized all that was good in the world. As the late long-time Phillies announcer Harry Kalas stated many times, “[Daulton] was the best team leader in any clubhouse and one of the nicest men I ever met”. Daulton’s talent on the baseball field and his kind disposition won him the respect and admiration of all who knew him.
