World Series - Cleveland Indians v Atlanta Braves - Game One

Fox Sports Southeast will begin re-airing the 1995 World Series Monday night with Game 1 set to get underway at 7 p.m. ET. The opening game of the World Series featured a vintage pitching duel between Atlanta’s Greg Maddux and Cleveland’s Orel Hershiser.
