Former All-Star baseball player Darren Daulton passed away this weekend from brain cancer at the age of 55. Daulton was well known for his 1992 season, where he led the NL in RBIs.
So how much was Darren Daulton net worth at the time of his death?
Darren Daulton was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in 1980. He played for the Phillies for several years, but didn’t really have a breakout until the 1990s.
In the early 90s, Daulton started amazing fans and the team by topping the National League in RBIs, and having other remarkable stats, including numbers of home runs. In 1992, he made the All-Star team, along with some of the blessed players of the time, and he was a candidate for MVP.
Unfortunately for him, later in the 90s, his injuries took him out of the game. He started to decline in hits and RBIs.
Eventually he was traded to the Florida Marlins, where he helped win the 1997 World Series. After that, he left the sport.
After leaving baseball, Daulton became a staple on the radio, hosting a talk show on a Philadelphia station. The show was called Talking Baseball with Dutch.
Darren Daulton died yesterday at the age of 55, after he had undergone surgery for brain tumors. The cancer went away for a while, but eventually returned.
Darren Daulton never made the types of salaries that people in the big leagues make today. He also had relatively little income from activities outside of baseball, like sponsorships. His radio and book earnings were relatively minuscule.
In total, we estimate that Darren Daulton net worth was less than $2 million at the time of his passing.
