A North Salinas High School graduate, Corrales' professional career began in 1996 when he was drafted by the Columbus Crew of Major League Soccer. After several years in the league, Corrales joined the San Jose Earthquakes in 2001 and won a championship with the team. Corrales and the Quakes would win another championship in 2003 under the leadership of former coach and now sporting director, Frank Yallop.
