New Hampshire team gives away Old Man of the Mountain bobblehead
People in New Hampshire love the Old Man of the Mountain. Until 2003, a granite formation in the town of Franconia Notch formed the profile of a man's face. In the early morning hours of May 3, 2003, the man's face collapsed, but he's still an icon in the Granite State.
On Tuesday, the New Hampshire Fisher Cats Double A baseball team honored the state's fallen hero with an Old Man of the Mountain bobblehead doll.
The face was visible to travelers on I-93 and attracted hundreds of thousands of tourists each year. After the face collapsed, visitors to other parts of Franconia Notch State Park fell by up to 25%, according to The New York Times.
