Phillies 2010 Alumni Weekend

1986 Topps #264 Darren Daulton

The Philadelphia Phillies 2010 Alumni Weekend is upon us. This year the Phils will be inducting Darren Daulton into their "Wall of Fame"

Daulton was the captain of the 93 Phils NLCS team and Won a World Series with the 97 Marlins. He was a 3 time All-Star with 137 Homers over a 14 year career. The 1993 season was his best as he hit 27 Homers and a league leading 109 RBIs.

Alumni Weekend will start this Friday August 6th and Run through August 8th. The Phils will be hosting the New York Mets for a 3 game series.

I have been to a couple of Alumni Nights and have had a good time. In the past couple of years there have been some painless autograph opportunities as well. Last year the signers were Jim Eisenreich, Mickey Morandini, and Mike Lieberthal.
