Former All-Star catcher Darren Daulton, one of the most beloved Philadelphia Phillies players in the club's history, died Sunday following a four-year battle with brain cancer. He was 55.

"Darren was a true leader of men. The Phillies would not have gone to the 1993 World Series without his leadership," Phillies chairman emeritus Bill Giles said in a statement. "In addition to being an outstanding clubhouse leader, he was also a fighter. He battled through five knee operations to become an All-Star. I really enjoyed watching him for 14 years in uniform. Darren was a super human being. His teammates loved him, I loved him like he was one of my own. In fact, he called me 'Uncle Bill.'"

Daulton was initially diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer called glioblastoma in 2013. Though he announced he was cancer-free in 2015, the Phillies revealed last month that the disease had returned.

Daulton played 14 years in the majors from 1983-97, with the majority of his career being spent in Philadelphia. A three-time All-Star, his best season came in 1993 when he belted 27 homers and an NL-best 109 RBIs en route to winning a Silver Slugger. He was widely acknowledged as the leader and heart of the 1993 Phillies club that shockingly won that year's NL pennant.

In July 1997, the Phillies traded Daulton to the Florida Marlins, who he helped win that year's World Series before retiring at season's end.

Daulton played 1,161 games in the majors, posting a .784 OPS and slugging 137 home runs.

The Phillies inducted Daulton into their Wall of Fame at Citizens Bank Park in 2010.

Per the Phillies' statement, Daulton is survived by his wife, Amanda, and their four children, along with his parents and brother.
