[HALL OF FAME] Preki and Thomas Dooley, teammates on the 1998 U.S. World Cup team, have been elected to the National Soccer Hall of Fame Class of 2010 on the Player ballot.

Preki, Major League Soccer's only two-time MVP, and Thomas Dooley, the 1993 U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year and eligible on the Player ballot for the last time, was named on 71 percent of the ballots, while Radosavljevic was named on 68 percent of the ballots.

A Player must be named on 66.7 percent of the selection committee's ballots to earn election.

Dooley and Preki were the top two vote-getters not elected in the 2009 balloting, when Jeff Agoos and Joy Fawcett were elected. In 2008 when no player appeared on the required 75 percent of ballots, Preki and Dooley finished first and fourth in the voting.

The selection committee for the player election includes all current and former coaches of the U.S. men's and women's National Team, active MLS coaches with a minimum of four years tenure, select soccer administrators, designated members of the media and all Hall of Famers. The committee members name up to 10 Players from the list of eligible candidates on their annual ballot.

Information on the Veteran Player and Builder 2010 ballot results will be released in the coming weeks. The Class of 2010 induction ceremony will likely be scheduled for this summer. Details are still being finalized and will be announced at a later date.

2010 Player Ballot Elections Results
Thomas Dooley 70.94 %
Preki Radosavljevic 68.38 %
Earnie Stewart 58.12 %
Shannon MacMillan 54.70 %
Joe-Max Moore  52.14 %
Marco Etcheverry 50.43 %
Carlos Valderrama 47.01 %
