defense at shortstop, but committed a key baserunning gaffe in Chicago's Game Four
LCS loss to Baltimore. Dybzinski was inserted in the lineup to replace regular shortstop
, who was 0-for-7 in the Series at that point. With two on in the seventh
inning of a scoreless tie at Comiskey Park

was held at
third base. Dybzinski steamed around second with his head down before realizing third
base was occupied. During the ensuing run-down, Law tried to score and was thrown
out, effectively ending the rally; Baltimore won in the tenth inning.
