1948 World Series (Game 1)
The 1948 World Series
Boston Braves vs Cleveland Indians
October 6th 1948
Braves Field, Boston MA
Boston was making their first appearance in the series since 1914 when they beat the Philadelphia A's to complete the year of the Miracle Braves. The Indians were making their first appearance since 1920, when they defeated the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Game 1 would see the aces of both teams take the pitchers mound, Johnny Sain for Boston and Bob Feller for Cleveland. Feller would lose both appearances in this series but the Indians took the world championship in 6 games.
Here is the coast to coast radio broadcast of Game 1 of the 1948 World Series.
Legendary announcer Mel Allen would host, what today we call the pregame show.
