Daulton treated at Philly hospital, then released

PHILADELPHIA -- Former Phillies catcher Darren Daulton was transported from Citizens Bank Park on Sunday to a nearby hospital, where he was treated and later released.

The Phillies said Daulton had fallen ill and went to the hospital to be evaluated, but his condition improved after receiving fluids. No other details were provided.

Daulton, who has been battling brain cancer since last summer, played for the Phillies in 1983 and from 1985-97. He appeared to be in fine shape and good spirits during Alumni Weekend festivities at the ballpark.

He participated in Saturday's Wall of Fame ceremony, receiving loud cheers from fans who fondly remember his role on the 1993 National League championship team. He also appeared on the field during Sunday's pregame ceremony, which involved an introduction of numerous Phillies alumni.
