Joe Davis may have only been with the Dodgers for a couple seasons so far, but he’s embracing his new home. Davis will attend Baseball Night at South Pasadena Public Library on January 29th. This was first reported by Harry Yadav of the South Pasadena Review.
The 30-year old Davis was hired by SportsNet LA prior to the 2016 season. He served as the Dodgers’ play-by-play commentator for road games in 2016, with legendary broadcaster Vin Scully doing home games. After Scully’s retirement, Davis took over duties in the Dodgers’ broadcast booth full-time, along side partner Orel Hershiser. He has excelled in his time with the Dodgers, and has become beloved among fans. Davis also continues to work for Fox Sports, calling national baseball games, as well as NFL and NCAA football and basketball games.
Coming into 2017, Joe Davis faced the impossible task of replacing Vin Scully in the Dodgers booth. Vin had been calling Dodger games for 67 seasons, and stands as the best baseball broadcaster of all time. While there will never be another Vin Scully, Joe Davis was exactly what Dodger fans needed. He shares many traits with Scully, and has a true knack for making an exciting moment even better.
Joe has already made so many memorable calls during his time in Los Angeles. Back in October, Gail Johnson compiled a list of some of the best. Although there were a ton to choose from, the most talked about one remains “Absolute Madness!” after the Dodgers hit back-to-back-to-back home runs to tie the game against Philadelphia.
At just 30-years old, Joe Davis has a long career ahead of him. Hopefully he follows in the footsteps of his predecessor and stays with the Dodgers for the duration of his career.
Davis has always been great at being approachable for fans, but this event will provide a unique experience for many to meet him in person. The event will be held January 29th, at 6:30 PM. It will take place in the Community Room at South Pasadena Public Library. The event does not require tickets, but will likely fill up quickly.
