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.  Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this difficult time.

I am currently in shock, disbelief. I was listening the Phanic on the way home But tonight there was no.97.5 FM called “Talking Baseball with Dutch,” which airs weeknights during the season. I heard the on air personality talk about a person in grave ill. Dear Lord. I knew Darren from 1990-1992, when he caught for my two friends, Jason Grimsley and Terry Mulholland.
