  • Darren Daulton Philadelphia Phillies circa 1988

Former MLB player Darren Daulton, who has battled brain cancer four years, died Sunday.

Daulton had been ill since July 1, 2013, when he was diagnosed with glioblastoma - the same type of brain cancer that Arizona Sen.

Daulton was never as consistently productive after he returned. He ended up playing a key role in the World Series victory for the Marlins, playing in all 7 games of the series, with 22 plate appearances, a.389/.455/.667 line and 7 runs scored in the series as the Marlins defeated the Indians, earning Daulton a World Series championship ring that his 1993 Phillies fell short of getting.

John Kruk, one of Daulton's former teammates with the Phillies, recalled in an interview that former Marlins skipper Jim Leyland told him that Daulton was the linchpin in the team's World Series win. That same year, his foundation, the Darren Daulton Foundation, which was established in 2011, shifted its mission to raise funds for brain cancer.

The numbers that Daulton put up were not "leap off the page" good - he only hit.245 with 137 homers and 588 RBIs.

'In addition to being an outstanding clubhouse leader, he was also a fighter. He led the National League in RBIs with 109 in 1992, becoming the fourth catcher to win the NL RBI title along with Carter, Roy Campanella and Johnny Bench.

'Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Amanda, his parents, his brother and his four children. He battled through five knee operations to become an All-Star. He was picked in the 25th round of the 1980 MLB draft, out of Arkansas City HS in Arkansas, and made his major league debut for the Philadelphia Phillies three years later.

'I really enjoyed watching him for 14 years in uniform.

Your honor, tonight I pray that God provides you the wisdom to judge my friend and provide him the opportunity to make amends with himself and the people that love him.

"Darren was a true leader of men", Phillies chairman emeritus Bill Giles said in a statement. In fact, he called me "Uncle Bill"'.
