Barry Ryan Enright (born March 30, 1986) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of Major League Baseball. Enright attended St. Mary's High School in Stockton, California and Pepperdine University. Enright was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2007 and he played in their minor league system until his major league debut in 2010. He was traded to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim during the 2012 season.
Prior to playing professionally, Enright attended St. Mary's High School and then Pepperdine University. In his first year at Pepperdine, 2005, he went 10-1 with a 4.62 ERA in 18 starts. The following year, he went 13-2 with a 4.05 ERA in 21 games (20 starts). In 2007, he went 12-5 with a 1.99 ERA in 18 starts. He was drafted in the second round of the 2007 amateur draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Enright began his professional career in 2007, splitting the season between three teams - the Yakima Bears (five games), the South Bend Silver Hawks (one game) and the Visalia Oaks (four games). He did not allow a single earned run in 15 combined innings of work, and he struck out 17 batters. In 2008, he pitched for the Oaks, going 12-8 with a 4.44 ERA in 29 starts. With the Mobile Bay Bears in 2009, Enright went 10-9 with a 3.98 ERA in 27 starts. He began 2010 with the Mobile Bay Bears, going 4-1 with a 2.88 ERA in 14 starts prior to his call-up to the major leagues. In 2011 while he was pitching for the Reno Aces, Enright threw a pitch behind Josh Donaldson of the Sacramento River Cats (who tagged Enright for a home run in the game earlier) and was promptly ejected along with Donaldson as the benches and bullpens cleared.
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
On July 24, 2012, Enright was traded to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for cash considerations. On Tuesday, April 30, 2013 Enright surrendered a two-run walk-off home run to Oakland Athletics slugger Brandon Moss in the nineteenth inning. The home run, which ended the longest game in Angels history, took place over six and a half hours after the first pitch, which was thrown by the Athletics' Dan Straily 7:05PM PT the previous day.
