Catcher Powell to join Furman staff

NEW YORK -- Catcher Landon Powell -- whose traumatic family ordeal, including the death of his infant daughter Izzy, was chronicled on E:60 earlier this season -- has joined the Furman University baseball staff as a volunteer assistant coach.

He was hitting .159 for Triple-A Las Vegas when he was released in June, but nonetheless had a ton of people rooting for him.
