* FiveTokenBand: The series featured 30 characters and lot of them were ethnic, so most of the time you could make your team like this trope.

These included nine blacks (Keisha, Jocinda, Dante, Stephanie, the Dobbs, Mikey, Ricky, and Ernie), three Hispanics (Maria, Jorge, and Pablo), three Asians (Luanne and the Kawaguchis), two Arabs (the Khans), and thirteen whites (Annie, Billy Jean, the Webbers, the Delvecchios, Lisa, Dmitri, Gretchen, Kimmy, Pete, Reese, and Marky).

Removing misused trope. Always Night requires that it is ALWAYS night. No exceptions.
* AlwaysNight: ''Backyard Baseball'' hosts playoffs and the All-Star Game in Humongous Memorial Stadium. The games are always held at night.

Added DiffLines:
**Outside shooting from ''Backyard Basketball''. Create a custom character, max that stat, repeatedly throw 3-pointers from anywhere on the court.

The Dev Team Thinks Of Everything is now Developers Foresight. Removed all non-illustrative or unclear examples as well as ZCE's and switched over all demonstrative examples.
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Having both pairs of siblings like the Khan brothers or the Webber twins on the same team will permanently boost their stats significantly, except for the Dobbs siblings, where Ronny actually LOSES stats when playing with his big sister. ** Certain kids have their own special bonuses if they play on the right team. [[GranolaGirl Annie Frasier]] performs better when she plays on a team with an animal for its mascot (i.e. Cardinals, Devil Rays, etc.) while the usually "average" [[PinkMeansFeminine Maria Luna]] becomes a baseball playing MACHINE if she's on a team with pink as one of the uniform colors.

Minor edit.
'''''Backyard Sports''''', formerly called ''Junior Sports'', is a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin sports]] video game series originally made by Creator/HumongousEntertainment, which was later bought by Creator/{{Atari}}. It is currently owned by Day6 Sports Group, who has since rebooted it has a MobilePhoneGame series, which is far from the series' original computer game roots. It is the only game series that had licensing from all the major professional sports leagues in North America: UsefulNotes/MajorLeagueBaseball, UsefulNotes/MajorLeagueSoccer, the UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague, the UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation, and the UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague.

Added DiffLines:
* SelfImposedChallenge: A relatively popular one is picking all the worst players on the highest difficulty and trying to go undefeated in Season Mode. Doubly so in the games that include the pros.

Added DiffLines:
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first three games seem heavily stripped down compared to the later ones. The first two lacked the pro players that would become such an icon of the series mere years later, ''Baseball'' only allows for one-color teams instead of two, the menu navigation was completely different and did not use the streamlined forward-and-back arrow mechanic, the player stats were measured on a one-to-four scale instead of one-to-ten, you couldn't pick a home field for a season game, and several other things that would be considered major staples are completely absent (for instance, the "power-up obtained" sound). The outfield viewpoint also featured hand-drawn figures instead of the CGI ones that became more prominent later on.
