Ernie Steele is a boy known for being the Jokester of the Backyard kids and for his height.
Ernie Steele is tall and skinny, but still up there for one of the most athletic. In Backyard Baseball, he had good power and contact for hitting. He was average at speed but his defense was good.
Ernie has always been known for his constant joking. He even sees himself as a joke. In 'Wild Pitch' however he is seen as a lot snarkier than in the games.
- Steele Stadium is his backyard and makes appearances in the Baseball and Soccer series.
- Ernie references his Steele Stadium in the book, Double Team.
- His backyard is playable in the newly revived series in Backyard Sports Baseball 2015. However, for unclear reasons, Ernie himself is absent from the game.
