New York, NY, Monday, August 7, 2017 … Major League Baseball Players Association Executive Director Tony Clark today issued the following statement regarding the passing of Don Baylor and Darren Daulton.


“Words cannot express the sadness we feel today, as cancer claims two more of the baseball-playing fraternity's proudest and strongest members.  Darren Daulton and Don Baylor will be deeply missed by the entire baseball community. During their playing careers and beyond, both Darren and Don selflessly helped generations of young players transition from wide-eyed rookies into successful Major Leaguers. Don's commitment to the game and its future also inspired him to play an instrumental role in helping the MLBPA establish itself as a bona-fide union.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Darren's and Don's families, friends and legions of fans."
