Joe Buck Honors His Father with Game 6 Call

Categories: Cardinals

Jack and Joe Buck call their respective Game 6's from Kidd Video on Vimeo.

Twenty years ago, the late-great Jack Buck was doing the TV commentary for Game 6 of the 1991 World Series when Kirby Puckett of the Minnesota Twins hit an 11th-inning home run to win the game and take the Atlanta Braves to a Game 7.

Jack Buck's call: "And we'll see ya' tomorrow night."

Last night it was Buck's son -- Joe Buck -- at the microphone when David Freese hit an 11-inning home run to take the World Series to Game 7.

Joe Buck's call: "We will see you tomorrow night."

Joe Buck had one of the greatest quotes I've ever heard in Game 6 when Lance Berkman tied the Game at 9 in the bottom of the 10th inning. He said " They just....won't.... go....away!

The timing of this quote spoken with a delay between each word sent chills down my spine.
