ST LOUIS, MO - OCTOBER 27: David Freese #23 of the St. Louis Cardinals hits a walk off solo home run in the 11th inning to win Game Six of the MLB World Series against the Texas Rangers at Busch Stadium on October 27, 2011 in St Louis, Missouri.

Like father, like son. Game 6 of the World Series provided a rare opportunity for FOX announcer Joe Buck to honor his father, Jack Buck, with a timeless home run call.

The historic nature of Cardinals 3B David Freese's 11th-inning walk-off home run against the Texas Rangers in Game 6 on Thursday night was certainly not loss Fox announcer Joe Buck. The entire scenario is eerily similar to the classic 1991 World Series Game 6, in which Jack Buck (Joe's father) had the privilege of calling Kirby Puckett's spectacular walk-off home run to force a game 7 between the Minnesota Twins and Atlanta Braves.

The events that transpired at Busch stadium gave Joe Buck occasion to pay homage to his father's timeless call "and we will see you tomorrow night." No matter what you think of the FOX announcing crew, this is a pretty special moment that on further highlights the improbable nature of Game 6. Take a look at the videos below of both calls and appreciate baseball history in the making...and re-making.
