As center of the Guided by Voices universe, Bob Pollard has recorded decades of music (literally) and earned legions of loyal fans, but never scored a mainstream hit. Interestingly, that aversion to hits extends back to his days as a pitcher, as he supposedly threw a dozen no-hitters between the ages of 10 and 20, including the first no-no in Wright State University baseball history (must've had something to do with his leg kick). Pollard never pursued the sport post-college, instead turning his attention to creating the kind of music career Jack McDowell could only dream of.
