Newsreel clip on baseball's 1958 World Series, a rematch of the '57 Series -- the Milwaukee Braves against the New York Yankees. Views of County Stadium, the site for games one and two, and the capacity crowd of 46,000 inside. Yankee manager Casey Stengel and Braves manager Fred Haney shake hands before the game, as do game one starting pitchers Warren Spahn of the Braves and Whitey Ford of the Yanks. In top of the fourth inning, the Yankees' Bill Skowron hits a home run to left field. In the bottom of the fourth, hits by Del Crandall, Andy Pafko and Spahn put Braves on top 2-1. Hank Bauer (seen in closeup) hits two-run homer for Yankees. Braves tie the game and send into extra innings, where hits by Crandall and Billy Bruton win it 4-3 in the tenth. Braves celebrate on field. Announcer notes that the Braves also won game two and moved "toward another world's championship." But Yankees would come from behind to win the series in seven games.
