Baseball Coach Killed In Accident

Associated Press - June 23, 2014 6:46 am

The Washburn University community is mourning the death of baseball coach Steven Anson.

The university and Jefferson County authorities say the 60-year-old Anson died Sunday in a tree-trimming accident. The sheriff’s office says emergency responders were called to the home about 3 p.m. Sunday, and Anson was dead at the scene. Further details of the accident were not immediately available.

His wife, Dena, is Washburn’s university relations director.

The university said in a news release that Anson compiled a record of 844-798-3 in 35 seasons with the Ichabods. He guided the Ichabods to five NAIA tournaments and was Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association coach of the year in 1994.

Anson played baseball at Kansas State, winning the Big Eight batting title in 1974 with a .439 average.
