We all know that our very own Joe Davis was destined to be great as the “October Voice of Baseball.” It’s what he’s dreamed of doing since he was a kid and now he’s finally making those dreams come true.
Although the Dodgers were eliminated in the NLDS, a part of us is still in the World Series. Joe Davis has been a play-by-play announcer for the team since 2016, following the legendary Vin Scully.
This year, Fox selected Davis to be the postseason commentator and we couldn’t be happier for him. We just wish that was us he was commentating for in the World Series.
On Sunday afternoon, the Phillies clinched their spot in the World Series after defeating the Padres 3-1 in the NL Championship Series. In the eighth inning of Game 5, Bryce Harper hit a two-run home run that cemented the team’s 4-3 victory.
Immediately after the ball made contact with Harper’s bat, Joe Davis knew where it was going.
“It’s in the air, left center field, Harper, swing of a lifetime!”
His call instantly went viral all over Twitter, as both Los Angeles fans and MLB fans in general felt his description of the hit was on point. At least one good thing to come out of this postseason (and, of course, the Phillies sending the Padres home).
But that’s not the first call to get some love this postseason.
We are very fortunate to call Davis one of our own and we are very proud that he is able to have this opportunity. He deserves it. Good luck in the World Series, Joe, and keep having fun.
