PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Former Phillies All-Star catcher Darren Daulton has been diagnosed with brain cancer.
A statement released by Philadelphia radio station 97.5 The Fanatic says Daulton has glioblastoma. The American Brain Tumor Association calls that form of cancer ``highly malignant.''
Daulton had hosted a nightly radio show at the station before doctors found two tumors on his brain on June 27. He had an operation to remove them on July 1.
The statement says Daulton has returned to his home near Clearwater, Fla., to continue recuperating with his immediate family and friends. He will eventually begin treatments there.
Daulton played 14 1/2 of his 15 major league seasons with Philadelphia and was a key part of the Phillies' NL championship team in 1993. He finished his career with the 1997 World Series champion Florida Marlins.
