'Dutch' To Undergo Surgery For Brain Tumors

Posted: Updated:

Former Phillies catcher Darren "Dutch" Daulton has two tumors in his brain and will undergo surgery next week, according to doctors.

Dutch has not been feeling well, and he went to the doctor for a check up. The scans reviewed two tumors.

Daulton was a three-time All-Star and won the Silver Slugger award in 1992. He played for the Phillies from 1983-1997 and finished his career with the Florida Marlins in '97, winning a World Series in his final season.

He was the leader of the Phillies' 1993 National League championship team and was inducted to the Phillies' Wall of Fame in 2010. He was also ranked the 25th greatest catcher of all time in the 2001 version of The Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract.

Dutch currently hosts a radio show on 97.5 The Fanatic called "Talking Baseball With Dutch." The station is encouraging anyone who wants to send him get well wishes to email dutch@975thefanatic.com.
