Sebastien Le Toux Ring of Honor
To kick off the celebration of Seba's career, fans are encouraged to stop by the Toyota Plaza from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. to sign a special gift for Le Toux. After the festivities on the Plaza, the first 3,000 fans who enter the gates will receive a limited edition commemorative print.
Once inside Talen Energy Stadium, keep an eye out for the players' warm-up tops, which will feature a patch to honor Le Toux. The patch from the warm-up tops can also be purchased in the Union Shop. In addition, limited edition Le Toux bobbleheads will also be on sale in the Shop.
The ceremony will begin at halftime, so make sure to stay in your seats!
