Jim Eisenreich: Ambassador

“Eisey” had an impressive 15 year career in the Major Leagues playing for the Twins, Royals, Marlins, Dodgers and most notably for Phillies fans, he was a huge part of the ’93 World Series roster. In 1993, his first year with the Phillies, Jim put together one of his best seasons, batting .318 and helping the Phillies win the National League pennant.

Jim’s climb to the big leagues wasn’t easy. After years of testing, he was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome. In baseball stadiums all around the country, he speaks to children and their families about his story. He speaks from experiences that were painful and he speaks from the heart. By establishing the Jim Eisenreich Foundation for Children with Tourette Syndrome, Jim has found a way to help others achieve their dreams. He’s passionate about giving back which is why it’s an honor to have him as a Darren Daulton Foundation Ambassador.

We spoke to Jim about why joining The Foundation was important to him. “I was privileged to be Darren’s teammate on 2 championship teams. The ’93 Phillies and the ’97 Marlins. Darren was the definition of a leader and a big reason both of those teams were winners. After our playing days, Darren was a friend who was always there to support us. I think it’s only fitting that I do what I can to help continue Darren’s cause to help those dealing with this dreaded cancer. I’m honored to be a part of the Darren Daulton Foundation.”
