    Dutch, I remember when you guys were going to the World Series , after you beat Atlanta, and came back to Philly International Airport. We got there at the fence around 1:30 PM. We were among the first ones there. I was lugging this big old cam-corder, which were very heavy back in the day. I think you guys got back around 9:00 PM. You and, Lenny and Harry were there and it was a great day and night. Dutch, you are a fighter who doesn't give up. You played through a lot of pain and you were a natural-born hero. It is no wonder that you were Harry Kalas's favorite team of all-time. Dutch, we are praying for you and I'm going to watch that recording of you guys coming back into the airport, I taped when we first got there, showing nobody else there, and again later when the crowds got there. I have never ever done anything like that before or after. it was worth waiting for you guys to get back to Philly. It was me and my wife, my son, and my wife's Avon lady, who was also a big Phillies fan. She is still alive and around 85 years old- the avon lady is 85, NOT my wife. Anyway, I know you will beat this because you are who you are.
    Again, our prayers are with you along with millions of other fans as well. Get better, and we look forward to when you return to your show. God Bless You, Dutch!!! We love you, dude!!!

    Dutch, back in '02 I waited on you at a TGI Fridays in the Tampa airport. I just so happened to be wearing my '93 Phils shirt with Kruk, Dykstra, and you up front! You asked me to sit down with you and we talked for almost an hour about the Phillies. It is a moment I will always remember. You are one of my favorite Philadelphia heroes of all time. I know you are going to beat this cause that is the man you are. God bless ya, Dutch!

    Darren Daulton is a truly wonderful person, who absolutely appreciated all of the fans. I will pray very hard for him. I just met him last week and he was mingeling with the entire place just like one of the people. It's a shame more athletes don't get it like he does. God Bless You Dutch

    Words cannot begin to express the horror I felt when I heard the news about Dutch.... the greatest Phillies Ball player ever!!! I grew up a Phillie fan coming from a home where Mom lived & breathed PHILLIES! She is 82 and with health slowly failing STILL A DIE HARD. I will never forget the 1993 World Series. I listen to Dutch as often as I can while in my car at the 6 pm hour and he always made me grin, snicker and/or LOL !!! I just loved listening to him .... and his "right on" lives in my head even more since this tragic news. Dutch is a fighter and with everything he's got and with all the love and support from family, friends and fans he will BEAT THIS! "When I was young" he was bar far the BEST LOOKING baseball player out there and to this day may I say he emits "hottness"! What a great guy! Keep Fighting!! EVERYONES PULLING for ya !!! Prayers from above will never end....

    PRAYERS AND WELL WISHES FOR YOU DUTCH!!!!! As someone who has lived with 2 brain tumors my entire life(an optic glioma and neurofibroma) both are inoperable with no other treatments, I can somewhat relate and sympathize. I hope but nothing for the best for you in this scary and difficult journey. You have the entire Delaware Valley and then some pulling for you! KEEP UP THE PHIGHT!!!!

    Harry Kalas and Richie Ashburn had great things to say about you when I quizzed them on all things 93 Phillies at a couple of Spring Training games, many years later. Said you were the best leader of all the ballplayers they had ever seen. Your toughness is legendary and if anyone can beat it you can. Wishing you the best and hope you have a speedy recovery.
