Daulton participates in annual alumni weekend
Former Philadelphia Phillies catcher Darren Daulton enjoyed his return to the ballpark on Friday.
"Oh my God, all my friends are here," Daulton said upon entering the press room at Citizens Bank Park.
Daulton, who is participating in the Phillies' annual alumni weekend, spoke publicly for the first time since his brain cancer diagnosis a little over a month ago.
The 51-year-old, now a radio personality in Philadelphia, was diagnosed with two brain tumors in June.
Both were removed after brain surgery on July 1, but nine days later Daulton was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer that also took the lives of his former teammate Tug McGraw and former coach John Vukovich.
