About Steven Ellis


Former pro Steven Ellis

Steven Ellis is a two-time MLB draft pick and former Chicago Cubs pitching pro. He has written 11 books (and has co-authored or published six others) covering all aspects of baseball that have changed the way coaches, parents and players teach and play the game.

His most popular books, TUFFCUFF and TUFFCUFF Jr, have appeared on the Amazon bestseller list and feature the same pitching workouts and training methods currently used by pitchers throughout Major League Baseball.

When not teaching baseball, publishing books or staring at code, he and his wife can be found training for and running marathons, skiing and building community in his current home town of Wellesley, MA.
