There are those who believe Zach Scott should eventually be immortalized with a statue outside of CenturyLink Field. While that may never come to pass, he will have the next best thing: a bobblehead. The first 20,000 people to come through the turnstiles for Sunday’s season finale will receive one.
As Scott alludes to when he likens the figure to former Sounders teammate Sebastian LeToux, this is not the most photo-realistic bobblehead ever created. That’s probably due at least in part to the announcement coming just about a month ago, unlikely enough lead time to have this done to the exact specifications everyone probably would have liked.
Still, this is a pretty cool honor for the longest-tenured player in club history — dating all the way back to the NASL days.
