The Major League Baseball All-Star game is currently airing on Fox and longtime play-by-play man Joe Buck is nowhere to be found.

Buck left Fox to become the new NFL play-by-play man over at ESPN, where he and his longtime partner Tory Aikman will call Monday Night Football. With the move to ESPN, Buck is no longer the play-by-play lead for Fox.

That job now belongs to Joe Davis. In just a few months, he'll become the first person since 1999 to call a World Series game other than Buck.

With Buck's absence tonight, fans are taking note.

"Joe Davis is a great announcer but Joe Buck’s voice was built for this. It signified a big game," one fan said.

"I miss Joe Buck," another fan said.

"Tonight is the night that America realizes that Joe Buck is no longer the lead MLB play-by-play announcer," another fan said.

It just doesn't seem the same without Joe Buck on the call.
