Horseshoe pitchers honored

The Hibbing Horseshoe Hall of Fame Committee inducted two new members Tuesday Oct. 1, at a ceremony held at the Hibbing Algonquin Club. Don “Toby” Neuenschwander (left) and Richard Bussey join Hall of Fame members Andy Paglarini, Harold Benson, Bill Grillo, James Rebrovich, Charles Straffacia, Arnold “Peg” Maki, Ben Leighton and Jerry Labrosse. Ray Pierce Jr presented the award to Don Neuenschwander and Tina Bussey gave a teary-eyed, heartfelt presentation to her father Rich Bussey. “It has become my favorite thing of the horseshoe season, recognizing our fellow pitchers and pioneers of our sport,” Pierce Jr., said. “It is truly an honor for me to be a part of the Hall of Fame.”
