Righetti's Ryan Delgado pitches against Bakersfield Liberty during the playoffs last May. Delgado has verbally committed to play for Cal Baptist. 

Righetti's Ryan Delgado has made his college choice.

The class of 2020 right-hander announced on Monday that he has committed to play ball at Cal Baptist University, located in Riverside.

Delgado primarily played third base or shortstop when he wasn't pitching for the Warriors in the 2018 season as they won the Mountain League title outright and made the CIF Central Section Division 1 semifinals. 

"Truly blessed to be able to say that I'm officially a Lancer," Delgado said on Twitter Monday. "Anxious for nothing but patient for everything." 

Delgado, at 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds, hit .316 with three home runs, four doubles, 18 runs and 13 RBIs. Delgado's walk-off double lifted the Warriors into the semifinals as it gave Righetti a 3-2 win over Bakersfield Liberty in the quarterfinals. 

On the mound, Delgado went 6-4 with a 2.83 ERA in 47 innings with 53 strikeouts. He walked 23 batters and allowed 47 hits. 

The Lancers moved up to the NCAA Division I level in 2018 and are members of the Western Athletic Conference, along with California schools Cal State Bakersfield and Sacramento State. Also fielding teams in the WAC are Chicago State, Grand Canyon University, Northern Colorado, Seattle, Utah Rio Grande Valley, Utah Valley and New Mexico State.
