Easy Sorting Question

I'm sure this question has been asked and answered hundreds of times on EE, but in the time it would take to find it I can just ask it again...

I have a hash called players.  The keys are simply integers numbering the players.  The values are as follows:


I need to output a list to the user with all players and their corresponding values listed, but I want the list sorted by score.  I've written a bunch of simple sorts that are close, but they are not getting the job done.

sub byscore {
    $players{$a}{score} <=> $players{$b}{score};

@sorted_keys_list = sort byscore (keys %players);

Hi Helver-

Thanks for the code; it's exactly right.  The sick thing is I had the EXACT same sort code, but am having trouble printing the players and scores out of sorted_keys_list.  Any ideas on this one?  (I know it's rude to ask you a second question, but you're getting the points either way-- don't worry...)
foreach( @sorted_keys_list ){
  print "@{$players{$_}}{'name','score'}\n";
