Joe Buck Video: Watch Buck Emulate His Father with Dramatic Walkoff Call

Joe Buck has been waiting years to pull this one out.

Jack Buck first used the "we'll see you tomorrow night" line back in the 1991 World Series, when Kirby Puckett smashed a home run out against the Atlanta Braves.

Joe opted to borrow the line from his father after David Freese's walk-off home run.

The St. Louis Cardinals pulled off an epic comeback last night after being down in both the ninth and 10th innings before coming back to tie both times. The Cardinals eventually sealed the victory with Freese's walk-off home run, which sent the team and stadium into a frenzy.

The epic comeback and walk-off home run needed an incredible call from Buck. He delivered by using one of his father's lines, but it didn't take away from the moment.

Buck has gotten a lot of heat through the years, including the infamous Artie Lange incident on Joe Buck Live, which lasted just three episodes.

The elder generation, which grew up listening to the late Jack Buck, remember him as one of the best announcers of all-time. Fans remember him famously calling Kirk Gibson's home run in Game 1 of the 1998 World Series. He didn't care what people thought about him, and he would often try to predict what would happen next.

He was beloved by baseball fans for his ability to do both baseball and football effectively. Joe is now looking to carry on his father's tradition. He learns and improves with everyday he spends on the job.

Joe knew what line to go to on Thursday night as he paid homage to his late father.
