Chicago Cubs third baseman Vance Law kept a family tradition going in Tuesday night's All-Star Game.

His father, Vern Law, was the starting pitcher for the National League in the second All-Star Game of 1960.Vance Law entered Tuesday's game in the ninth inning as a defensive replacement for Chicago Cubs teammate Ryne Sandberg.

"I was only 4 years old when my father started in 1960 but I've been told all about it and have the photos," Law, a first-time All-Star said.

"It was great to be able to participate in this game just like my father did."

Law, 30, wasn't re-signed by Montreal this season and took over at third for the Cubs after incumbent Keith Moreland was traded to San Diego. Law is hitting .303 with five homers and 41 runs batted in.

"This season has been great for me and proven I still could help a team," Law said.

Other father-son combinations in the All-Star game were Gus and Buddy Bell and Ray and Bob Boone.
