Rudy Law

1981 Topps

Law spent seven seasons playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals. He appeared in 749 games between 1978-1986 and hit .271 with 18 home runs and 228 stolen bases. He was a regular for the Dodgers in 1980, hitting .260 in 128 games, but spent the next year in AAA thanks to a logjam in the Los Angeles outfield. The Dodgers dealt Law to the White Sox and he had two great seasons in Chicago. He hit .318 with 36 stolen bases in 1982 and then posted a .283 average with 77 steals and 95 runs scored in 1983. His performance that year was good enough to get him votes in the American League MVP race. Law eventually made his way to Kansas City, where he played his final season before his career concluded in 1986.


Law helped the White Sox reach the 1983 American League Championship Series where they squared off with the Baltimore Orioles. In four games, Law hit .389 with two steals. However, the Orioles defeated Chicago en route to a World Series victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.
