Although we’re still just a little bitter that Joe Davis wasn’t able to make calls for the Dodgers in the World Series this year, it’s been cool to see more of the sports world not only become exposed to Joe Davis’ voice but also fully appreciate his calls.
Davis was hired by the Los Angeles Dodgers in November 2015 initially to call road games for the team-owned SportsNet LA, beginning with the 2016 season. The following year, he assumed the role full-time succeeding legendary Hall of Fame broadcaster, Vin Scully whom he picked up a few tips and tricks from along the way.
Since Joe Davis was named the “Voice of October Baseball” back in the spring, fans from all over the MLB have taken it to Twitter to show their appreciation for his perfect word choice in those unforgettable moments of the 2022 postseason.
Some of those same fans have noticed the familiar voice and connected the dots that yes, Davis does in fact have a job outside of just baseball.

Been quite the month or so for Joe Davis, who is killing it on play-by-play here after doing the same during the World Series https://t.co/YBSZjJ35os

Lots of sports fans have also become die-hard Joe Davis fans just like us, but they got to get in line first since he’s devoted to his Boys in Blue.
Joe Davis is the next great sports announcer. But we in LA been knowing that already.

This past month has shown me how underappreciated Joe Davis is as a broadcaster. Dude is the total package of energy, consistency, and accuracy in play-by-play form.

Even some have been arguing that Joe Davis should call the 2023 Super Bowl and after the way he called the World Series, that might not be as crazy of a thought as it may seem.
The guy has a big passion and heart for sports that even if you’re not super a fan of either team playing on the field, you’re still intrigued by his calls.
That’s truly a gift and something we might not have heard since Vin Scully and what an honor that is to be compared to such a broadcasting legend. We’re lucky to call you ours, Joe.
