JACK FREEMAN, Nashville, Tennessee
Promoter/Organizer: Jack played in his first sanctioned horseshoe tournament in 1988 and in 1989 attended his first World tournament. An idea was born and he bought land in Joelton, TN, with intentions to build an indoor pitching facility. By 1996 he was the recipient of the Arch Stokes Memorial Award. An idea was forming in Jack's mind to donate the land in parcels as a future site for a NHPA Hall of Fame. The NHPF came into being at that point to receive the gifts. Jack's untimely death but that dream to an end but the property that had been donated to that point and the creation of the NHPF allowed plans to materialize for our present day Hall of Fame. This all due to the dreams, imitative and gifts begun by Dr. Jack Freeman. Jack died December 28, 2003 at age 69.
