Enatsu is a fascinating character. He was the first round pick of the Tigers in the 1966 draft and was a star starting pitcher for them for a number of years. He was traded to the Nankai Hawks after the 1975 season after some poor years with Hanshin and Nankai manager Katsuya Nomura converted him to a relief pitcher. He got sold to the Carp after the Hawks fired Nomura after 1977 and excelled in a relief role for them. He won the Central League MVP in 1979 when the Carp won the first of two consecutive Nippon Series over the Kintetsu Buffaloes (that's not meant to be ambiguous - the Carp beat the Buffaloes in both the 1979 and 1980 Nippon Series). He got traded to the Nippon Ham Fighters after 1980 and led them to the Pacific League pennant in 1981 - their first since 1962. He was named PL MVP that year, becoming the first player to ever be named MVP in both leagues. He finished his NPB career with the Seibu Lions in 1984 and then wrangled a invitation to spring training with the Milwaukee Brewers in 1985. He retired after not making the team.
Enatsu's career had many ups and downs. He holds the single season strikeout record in NPB with 401 in 1968. He combined with a couple other pitchers to throw a no-hitter in one of the All Star games in 1971 (in which he struck out all nine batters that he faced) and had the ultimate DIY performance ever by a pitcher when he threw 11 no-hit innings against the Chunichi Dragons in 1973 and hit a solo home run to win the game in the bottom of the 11th. On the downside he was involved in the "Black Mist" scandal in the late 60's/early 70's although he was not suspended. He was arrested for possession of stimulants in the 1990's and served several years in jail. I believe that he renounced his meikyukai membership after he went to jail but I haven't found a reference for that. He has not been elected to the Hall Of Fame. (I heavily referenced the biography of Enatsu on @thehanshintiger's blog for this post.)
Here's a variety of cards from Enatsu, both from when he was playing and from OB cards after he retired. He's a bit unpredictable in appearing in OB sets. He hasn't appeared in a BBM one since 2013 but he's shown up in several Epoch sets since then.
