Los Angeles Galaxy veteran Eddie Lewis announced on team's web-based radio show Cup of Joe that he would be retiring from professional soccer at the end of the 2010 MLS season.
“This is going to be my last season, and it’s been great,” said Lewis.
One of the league's original players, Lewis was drafted out of UCLA. He played for the first incarnation of the MLS San Jose Earthquakes, and quickly became a standout on a struggling team. In fact, the winger impressed so much that he soon received an opportunity to play abroad and became one of the first transfers out of MLS to England.
