Baseball Coach Killed In Accident

KSAL StaffJune 23, 2014

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.
