Revolution Original Ralston Returns Home

Citing the financial position of the hometown-based team he had playing for, AC St. Louis in the USSF Division 2 Pro League, former forward and assistant coach Steve Ralston signed a contract Tuesday to return to his first home as a member of Major League Soccer's New England Revolution, where he played for eight seasons before joining AC St. Louis in January 2010.

The league's all-time leader in appearances (378), assists (135), starts (372) and minutes played (33,143) will make his return to the team at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA June 27 when they host the Chicago Fire following the league's first-ever break for FIFA World Cup play.

The ownership of AC St. Louis recently announced the folding May 27 of the St. Louis Athletica in Women's Professional Soccer due to cash flow problems and Ralston was given the ability to return to MLS by them.

He has only played in two games for the USSF D-2 team after spending most of the current season rehabbing a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
