No. 6: Remembering Darren Daulton

Not everything that happened this season was happy. Fan and team members alike were saddened by the passing of Darren Daulton during the season. The brain cancer he had beat before came back with a vengeance and it ultimately caused his death.

Fans, Phillies officials, former teammates, and many others in the baseball world expressed their sadness over Daulton’s passing.

Daulton’s passing came just before alumni weekend, and with Pete Rose ungracefully removed from the ceremonies, they focused more on Daulton and the alumni base as a whole. The team painted his number 10 behind the plate and had his jersey hanging in the dugout for the weekend.
