The Galaxy may be fourth in Major League Soccer's Western Conference standings but, based on sales figures released by the MLS on the eve of its business summit in Columbus, Ohio, the team is apparently No. 1 in the hearts of the league's fans.
The Galaxy is the only team to have the jerseys of three of its players rank among the eight bestselling shirts in MLS. David Beckham's No. 23 remained the most popular, followed by the jersey of Thierry Henry of the New York Red Bulls.
Galaxy captain Landon Donovan's No. 10 ranked third, five spots ahead of teammate Robbie Keane. The Galaxy is the only team to have two players in the top six.
Donovan, who has missed the last three games with a strained hamstring, pledged to be back on the field Friday after picking up a goal and an assist during a reserve league game Monday. Donovan played 33 minutes, his first action since participating in the U.S. national team's win over Mexico last month.
