Ty Law runs back a Drew Bledsoe interception in 2002 against the Bills, one of his 53 career picks.

FOXBOROUGH — Ty Law ran the full gamut of emotions on Friday night: He laughed, he cried, and he danced.

Law, 40, became the 22d player to be inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame on Friday night, accepting his new red blazer in front of Robert and Jonathan Kraft, several of his former teammates, and a few thousand Patriots fans on hand for the ceremony and the team’s open practice in Gillette Stadium.

Law thanked Kraft for making him the Patriots’ first-round pick in 1995, and then his teammates for helping him win three Super Bowl championships in his 10-year career with the Patriots.

Law shared a lot of fun stories of his days with teammates Otis Smith, Kevin Faulk, Lawyer Milloy, Rodney Harrison, and Tedy Bruschi, each of whom was on hand. He broke down in tears at one point, and ended the ceremony by recreating his famous dance-off with Robert Kraft at Boston City Hall Plaza in 2002 after the team won its first championship.

Law had special blue-and-red bedazzled shoes made for Kraft for Friday night, and the two danced their hearts out to the delight of the crowd.

“I wanted to make it fun,” Law said. “It was emotional, but I was just happy and wanted to live in the moment. Wanted to give the people and Mr. Kraft something to remember.”
