Ty Law will be back in Foxboro for his induction into the Patriots Hall of Fame on Friday, Aug. 1. 

The ceremony, which is free and open to the public, will be held at Gillette Stadium on the plaza outside The Hall at Patriot Place at 4:30 p.m.

After Law is inducted, the Patriots will have their annual training camp practice inside the stadium on the game turf at 7 p.m. The practice will be open to season-ticket holders.

Law is the 22nd person to be inducted to the team's Hall of Fame and one of four Patriots to be selected in his first year of eligibility, joining Tedy Bruschi (2013), Troy Brown (2012), and Drew Bledsoe (2011).

"Ty Law was one of the greatest players in franchise history and one of the premier corners in the NFL during his Patriots career," Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft said at the time of Law's selection. "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."

Law spent 10 seasons with the Patriots (1995-2004) after joining the team as a first-round (23rd overall) draft pick out of Michigan in 1995. He was a three-time Super Bowl Champion (XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX), a four-time Pro Bowl player (1998, 2001, 2002, 2003) and a two-time All-Pro (1998, 2003) during his tenure with the Patriots.

Law tied Raymond Clayborn’s career franchise-record with 36 interceptions and finished with the most interception-return yards in team history with 583. His six interceptions returned for touchdowns are also a franchise best.
