Newell Esterly

Co-founder and lifetime member of the Frederick County Horseshoe Pitchers Association, and often called the “Iron Hand” behind Frederick horseshoes, Newell Esterly was one of the sport’s most avid promoters and administrators. He was instrumental in the 1981 creation of the Maryvale Park horseshoe pitching park, the first of its kind in the Frederick area, and host to many large state and national tournaments. The park has since been named the Esterly/Keilholtz Horseshoe Courts for the contributions of Esterly and fellow Hall of Fame member Glen Keilholtz.
