Sebastien LeToux gets inducted into the Union Ring of Honor

Sebastien LeToux became the inaugural member of the Union Ring of Honor during halftime of Saturday’s Union vs Whitecaps match.

The ceremony started off with the master of ceremonies (and Union substitute play-by-play man) Dave Leno introducing LeToux. The Union front office (including lame duck Sporting Director Earnie Stewart and majority owner Jay Sugarman) lined up on one side the podium, and LeToux’s family and friends lined up on the other side.

LeToux walked from the sideline to the podium near midfield. As he arrived, he was wiping away tears.

At that point a video was presented on the screen which included tributes from some of LeToux’s former Union teammates. Tributes from Conor Casey, and Tranquillo Barnetta got big cheers from the crowd.

LeToux then gave a short speech thanking the front office, his former teammates, and his family. He also received a giant Union jersey signed by fans.

Then, the piece de resistance: the unveiling of his name on the Ring of Honor:

Merci Seba!
