Law set a since-surpassed Los Angeles Dodger rookie record by stealing 40 bases in 1980 but, failing to hit in the second half, was returned to the minors. The White Sox acquired him in 1982 and made him their leadoff man. In 1983 he was the catalyst in Chicago’s division championship; he led AL outfielders in fielding average and eclipsed Luis Aparicio’s club stolen base record, with 77. He was forced to give up his uniform #11 in 1984 when it was retired in honor of Aparicio. Signed as a free agent by the Royals in 1986, he injured a knee and soon left the majors.
