Thanks Steve. I just figured it out. Below is what I did
for those (like me) who are not very Matlab savy.

First you must open the figure.

openfig('fig1.fig'); %opens the figure

h = findobj(gca, 'Type', 'line'); %gca gets 'handle'
%of the open figure
%h now has a value of 160.0106, not sure why but don't care

get(h) %displays a list of all the 'tags', one of
%which is XData and YData, which contain the
%plot data

X = get(h, 'XData');
Y = get(h, 'YData');
