Former Phillies Catcher, Darren Daulton, Has Lost His Mind

As my family was originally from the Philadelphia area, I grew up a Phils fan. We moved down to TN when I was around 1 year old, and while maintaining my love of the Phils, I grew to love the Atlanta Braves as well.

I still have my program, wrist band, and batting glove that I got when my father took me to see the Phillies play in Veterans stadium in ’84 (or so). I watched the great Mike Schmidt, Ozzie Virgil, Steve Carlton, and Tug McGraw play that night.

In more recent years, I enjoyed watching the Phillies in the ’90s when they sported the gruf, rebel-type players such as Lenny Dykstra, John Kruk, Mitch Williams, and yes, Darren Daulton.

As the headline indicates, Mr. Daulton has either lost his mind, or he’s one of the few humans on earth who really GET IT.

SI Reports:

In Daulton’s private cosmology, everything “just is” — so yesterday, right now and tomorrow all happen simultaneously. “Your mind creates the reality you live in,” says the former big league catcher, a three-time All-Star who spent 14 seasons with the Phillies and Marlins. And Daulton’s reality can get pretty surreal.

“When I share my thoughts and experiences with them, I tell them there’s absolutely no way their minds can comprehend what I’m trying to relate,” he says. “My friends are limited to the five senses.”

Home alone in Tampa, Daulton spends much of his spare time typing up his mystical musings. The notes read like they were dictated by the True Believers who hitched a ride with Comet Hale-Bopp. “Reality is created and guarded by numeric patterns that overlap and awaken human consciousness, like a giant matrix or hologram,” writes the .245 lifetime hitter. “They are created by sacred geometry — numbers, the language of the universe, codes of awakening — such as 11:11, which represent twin strands of DNA about to return to balance. Eleven equals BALANCE.”

Earth, Daulton believes, is entering a quadrant of space in which the “vibrational energy” will increase dramatically. “The Mayan calendar stops at Dec. 21, 2012 — the date the Mayans believed the world would end,” he says. “On that day, at 11:11 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time, those who are ready to ascend will vanish from this plane of existence, like the crew of the Enterprise in Star Trek.”

You get the idea. Hey, he may be exactly right, folks.
