Luanne Lui is the youngest player of the Backyard league. She is also a discontinued character in the series during the 2007-2009 era. Luanne made her return in Backyard Sports Baseball 2015.

Appearance[]

Luanne is of Asian descent, with long brown hair usually kept in a hairband as well as wearing a yellow shirt and green pants. In later games she switches it out for a blue shirt and white pants.

Personality[]

Luanne is a sweet little girl who carries her teddy bear (referred to by her as simply "Teddy") around everywhere she goes. She talks in a stereotypical baby talk speech impediment (she pronounces most L's and R's with a W). She is one of fastest runners in the league and a decent player. Later in Backyard Hockey, Luanne has a teddy bear backpack and her personality remains intact.

Player Cards[]

Luanne is the youngest ball player in the neighborhood, but probably one of the fastest. She says her teddy is her lucky charm.

Luanne has got a lot of skills for a kid who still carries around her teddy bear. Not much of a throwing arm, but has great speed on the basepads and can steam second before the catcher can even get the ball out of the glove. Luanne is also a super-fantastic pitcher with an outstanding 'fireball.'

Luanne moves fast for a kid with such tiny legs. But she won't go anywhere without her teddy.

Luanne's the youngest player in the league. She's also one of the fastest. Unfortunately, she tends to be more concerned with not fumbling her teddy bear than the ball.

She may be the youngest player in the league, but her blazing speed and reliable ballhandling make her look like a veteran twice her age. Of course, that would still only make her eight years old.

Luanne is a lightning-fast skater, but needs to work on her other hockey skills before she can be considered an all-around player.

Trivia[]

    • In the MLB licensed editions however, she outperforms Olga in both running (by a point) and pitching.
  • In Backyard Football 2006, she mentions that she plays the piano.
