PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Lenny Dykstra paid tribute to his former teammate and friend Darren Daulton in a Facebook video, early on Monday morning.
“Dutch, as we called him, was a warriors, was a leader, was one of the toughest individuals I’ve ever played with,” Dykstra said of Dutch, who lost his fight against brain cancer on Sunday at the age of 55.
“He was, without a doubt, the unquestioned leader that took a team that we went from last to first in 1993, where we made baseball fun again in Philadelphia.”
