A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet my all time favorite Phillie, Darren “Dutch” Daulton. Darren was making an appearance at Appetites on Main, in Exton, PA. I tried not to act like too much of a crazed fan but all my dreams of meeting him came true.
When Darren played for the Phillies he was a force to be reckoned with. All his teammates looked up to him and all the fans wanted to know him. He played hard and epitomized what a Phillie was supposed to be.
I fell in love with Darren Daulton after Terry Mulholland threw his no hitter in 1989. I was watching the post game coverage of this feat, when the most handsome man I had ever seen filled the screen. He had bright eyes, a strong jaw and, his muscles bulged. I was hooked. It was from this point on that I became an avid Phillies fan and gave my heart to Dutch.
