Nothing means anything in sports until it's immortalized in bobblehead form.
Former TCU baseball great Jake Arrieta, who is pitching for the Philadelphia Phillies after more than four seasons with the Chicago Cubs, is for the first time given the bobblehead treatment in a Horned Frogs' uniform.
The bobblehead is one of nine featuring major league stars in their college uniforms, produced by FOCO. Other players include the Yankees' Aaron Judge (Fresno State), and the Astros' Alex Bregman (LSU) and George Springer (Connecticut).

Each of these bobbleheads are numbered and limited to 2,018.
Arrieta, who won the National League Cy Young in 2015 for the Cubs, played for TCU in 2006 and 2007 before being selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the third round of the 2007 MLB draft. He made his major league debut in 2010. He is 4-2 with a 2.45 ERA in nine starts in 2018.
