Clyde Mitchell Shoun (March 20, 1912 – March 20, 1968) was an American professional baseball player. A left-handed pitcher, he was born in Mountain City, Tennessee, and known as "Hardrock", due to his fastball. He was the younger brother of professional basketball player Slim Shoun.
Shoun led the major leagues in games pitched with 54 in 1940 when he was a member of the Cardinals.
While with the Reds, Shoun no-hit the Boston Braves 1–0 on May 15, 1944. The lone baserunner came on a walk to his mound opponent, Jim Tobin, himself a no-hit pitcher just 18 days earlier on April 27, and well known for being a good-hitting pitcher.
