Towards the end of June, after finishing off the regular season in first place with a 15-0 record in their division, The Blind Guy Window Treatment (team formally CBiz Tofias 2012 and 2013) won the CLCF Cranston Cal Ripken Baseball 2014 AAA Championship for the third year in a row with a win over TyBren Lawn Care 5-2 at Bain's Ricci field to end an incredible season with an 18-0 record.
Winning the championship is hard enough but winning 18 games in a row is outstanding and almost impossible, said coach Al Travieso.
Tybren Lawn Care got on the scoreboard first with two runs in the top of the first inning. The Blind Guy answered back in the bottom of the first inning with a run after Myles Chung walked and Andrew Travieso hit an RBI double to make it 2-1 after one inning.
The score stayed the same until the bottom of the third inning with two outs, Myles Chung got a base hit, Andrew Travieso hit another RBI double to make it 2-2. Alex Marot followed with an RBI base hit to score Travieso, Anthony “Sushii” Sousa hit an RBI double to score Marot, Anthony “Zucchini” Zangari got an RBI base hit to score Sousa to make it 5-2.
In the bottom of the fourth inning pitcher, Andrew Travieso got the call to relieve Alex Marot, who had started and pitched the first three innings for TBG and after that the team never looked back.
After the game Manager and Head Coach Mike Marot had this to say, "Thank you to all the great players, parents and all the coaches for their hard work to make this a historic CLCF season."
