Daulton diagnosed with brain tumors

Former Phillies All-Star catcher Darren Daulton has been diagnosed with two brain tumors.

Daulton, who now hosts a show on 97.5 FM called "Talking Baseball with Dutch," is reportedly in intensive care at Jefferson University Hospital, and one of the tumors is inoperable.

"Darren Daulton has not been feeling well over the past two weeks. He went to the doctor who discovered two brain tumors and is scheduled for surgery early next week," 97.5 said in a statement.  "Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this difficult time. Of course we want to respect his privacy at a time like this, but if you would like to send him get well wishes you may do so at dutch@975thefanatic.com."

Daulton 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. A three-time All-Star Daulton was inducted to the Phillies' Wall of Fame in 2010.
