Vern Law is a George Q Cannon Honoree

Vern is a retired Major League Baseball Pitcher who played 16 seasons for the Pittsburgh Pirates between 1950-1967.   Vern put his promising and rewarding baseball career on hold to voluntarily enlist to serve his country during the Korean War missing the 1952-1953 seasons.   As a baseball player he won a World Series with the Pirates, the Cy Young Award, was a member of the National League All Star team, and was recognized for the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award.   Vern has also been a prominent Provo citizen, BYU baseball coach, and a stalwart member of the church.   For his duty to God and Country, let us all say “Thank you” to Brother Vern Law.
