In this chapter Tuck's dad takes the family to a baseball game. (or at least plans to) Ellen being sneaky and not wanting to actually localize Tuckerville doesn't name the teams playing or the stadium. Per Tuck:I thought about it for a long time, it seemed like. Finally, I realized that I hadn't been to a baseball game since last year.

This is 18 Apr 98 if I'm reading the story correctly just shortly after Tuck first learns that yes he is growing breasts because (well at this point Ellen doesn't say...) of hereditary medical problems.

Any way this could have given us more specific pointers than Kings Island. The question is would it have been a college game or a pro (MLB) game?

Well, I didn't check the exact date but you surely got the year wrong. Tuck begins in Halloween 2006 and goes on through most of 2007 (so far). Two big hints: both the first episode of South Park and the death of Lady Di are mentioned within the story in the day they happen.

Both happened in August 1997.

Oh... Embarassed I'm not much of a history buff as far as either of those events go. And some how I got the impression that Tuck started this adventure on Halloween 97... So this would be April 97. Therefore the Christmas that is anticipated in the last chapter would be Christmas 97.

I shall try to remember that. Still Ellen could have given us a clue as to what teams were playing.... Twisted Evil
