DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — A season ago Ryan Long's Delphi baseball program finished its season with a 24-8 record, not to mention a class 2A sectional title. The championship was the Oracles first since 2013. You can imagine the momentum Long's five seniors were riding into the 2020 campaign before it was canceled.

Jayden McClain played short stop and was one of the team's best pitchers. McClain will be attending IUPUI in the coming school year.

Zach Townsend was a rightfielder and pitcher. He plans on attending IU Kokomo.

Brady Oliver will join Townsend at IU Kokomo. Oliver played left field and served as a designated hitter.

Austin Smith served as an outfielder. He plans on joining the Marines after graduation.

Finally Tyler Gano played in both left and right field. Gano also pitched for the Oracles. He plans on joining the union and pursuing a trade profession after high school.

Coach Long leaves his guys with a simple message about their contributions to Delphi.

"Outside of baseball, a great group of kids, class kids, are willing to go above and beyond to help people," said Long.

"They really work hard and strive to be successful at everything they are trying to do. So they are going to be missed, not only from this baseball program, but from the school, and they are going to be successful kids in life."
