Keeping with the tradition of past players, former Patriots cornerback Ty Law is headed to the Patriots Hall of fame, marking the fourth straight year in which an inductee has earned the honor in their first year of eligibility.

Law joins other prestigious names who accomplished that same honor, including Drew Bledsoe (2011), Troy Brown (2012), and last year’s inductee Tedy Bruschi.

“Ty Law was one of the greatest players in franchise history and one of the premier corners in the NFL during his Patriots career,” said Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft. “The fans have helped validate that with this year’s hall of fame selection. We have had an incredible run of success and the building blocks started with players like Ty. He was an important part of three Super Bowl championship teams. It will be an honor to bring Ty back to celebrate his career as he takes his rightful place in our team’s hall of fame. I am sure he will deliver another memorable moment during his hall of fame ceremony, too.”

His ceremony will be held on August 1st at 4:30pm, which is just before the team holds their annual in-stadium practice for season ticket holders.  It’s also free and open to the public.
