(Reading, PA) – Former Philadelphia Phillie Danny Jackson and the Daulton Foundation will be on hand as the R-Phils celebrate Fightin Cancer Night at FirstEnergy Stadium on Wednesday, June 28. R-Phils fans will have the opportunity to pay tribute to loved ones with specialty jerseys.

Jackson played for the Phillies during the 1993 and '94 seasons, alongside Darren Daulton. Both helped lead the Phillies to the 1993 National League Championship. Fans can take part in a free autograph session with Jackson in support of the Daulton Foundation.

The Darren Daulton Foundation's mission is to provide financial support to families that are experiencing financial challenges due to treatment of a malignant primary brain tumor diagnosis. Former Fightin Darren “Dutch” Daulton underwent surgery to fight his glioblastoma. He put up a strong fight against cancer after going into remission once, and created this group to help others afflicted by the same disease. He will always be remembered as a giving and loving family member, friend, and teammate. The foundation helps his memory lives on this way. Daulton played 113 games in Baseballtown in 1983.

Additionally, fans have the opportunity to honor loved ones by participating in the specialty ‘Fightin Cancer’ jersey program as the R-Phils open up their series with the Richmond Flying Squirrels at 7 p.m.

The R-Phils are proud to stand up and raise money and awareness for one of baseball's most important fights. This night allows all types of cancer and all different battles to be recognized. We encourage our fans to join us in championing these fighters.

The Cancer Awareness jerseys the R-Phils will wear on June 28th will recognize all forms of cancer that individuals battle. The FIRST 25 families and friends that purchase 20 or more tickets for reserved seating or a picnic area for the June 28th game will have the opportunity to have a loved one represented during the game for no additional charge. The specialty jerseys will be personalized with the honoree’s name on the back. Players will receive a photo and bio of the honoree they are representing on the field. A special post-game jersey ceremony will take place with the 25 jersey honorees receiving their game-worn jersey on the field. If the honoree is present, they will receive the jersey. If the honoree has passed, the family will receive the jersey.

Please complete this form to reserve the opportunity for a jersey to be worn by a player during the June 28th Fightin Cancer game. A Reading Fightin Phils representative will contact you to confirm your submission and coordinate your group outing for the game on June 28.

Single-game tickets are now on sale. You can purchase tickets for this special night, and any game during the 2023 season, by going to rphils.com/tickets, calling 610-370-BALL or in-person at the Customers Bank Ticket Office.
