Only two teams have clinched a playoff bid but months ago, a familiar voice had already clinched his ticket to the World Series.
It was announced in April that Joe Davis would take Joe Buck’s place as the voice of postseason baseball. To Fox Sports, Davis was an easy choice but to Davis, this was a dream come true.

When Davis was offered the job of a lifetime he explained that he “cried like a chick on the Bachelor,” and fittingly so.
For the past 5 years, Davis has served as the play-by-play broadcast announcer for Los Angeles Dodgers which telecasts on Spectrum SportsNet LA. He followed in the footsteps of the legendary broadcaster, Vin Scully after he retired in 2016.
To be the voice behind October baseball and the World Series, any person would be still starstruck. Especially for a kid from Potterville, Michigan who got his big break at the ripe age of 24 becoming an announcer for ESPN.
Since then, he’s done his homework and now it’s his time to shine on the MLB’s biggest stage.
Yesterday, he starred in a new interview with CBS LA to talk about how booked and busy he is through the next few months:
Things are about to get busy for @Joe_Davis! The voice of the @Dodgers will now also be the voice of @MLBONFOX ??postseason. He tells @jillpainter about that and also talks about his relationship and respect for the late Vin Scully today at 4pm on @CBSLA @DodgersNation pic.twitter.com/1EleLEh9yg
