Welcome to my website.
My name is Steven Ellis, and I'm a two-time MLB Draft pick and former pitcher in the Chicago Cubs organization.
These days, I'm a parent and coach just like many of you.
So what's this website all about?
It's really about one thing: maximizing pitching performance.
The internet today is full of websites designed to help pitchers gain a better understanding of pitching mechanics, velocity, ball control and reducing the risk of injury.
What's still missing, however, is a source for pitchers to get information on how to improve their game beyond mechanics or strength and conditioning. A place to learn about preparation, mound presence, the mental side, competing and pitching strategy —in other words, "the finer points of pitching."
thecompletepitcher.com solves this information gap.
As pitchers continue to move up in their careers, they will continually come up against tougher competition—better athletes with more raw talent and physical skills.
How can you compete and still win?
I like to see a guy who is confident in what he is doing because he has prepared. Someone who doesn't get phased by an adverse situation—a bulldog mentality and work ethic.
Mix these qualities with the ability to get ahead in the count, keep hitters off-balance, locate pitches, work both sides of the plate and change speeds with complete command of the strike zone...
...now that's the type of pitcher who will keep hitters on an opposing team guessing all day.
And that's how you can gain an edge.
I encourage you to spend some time reading my articles. You can comment directly on them or join my free discussion forum for pitchers to share your thoughts and insights, too.
I'd love to hear from you.
Good luck and keep working hard.
Over the years, I've watched pitching fads come and go. But when the fads have failed, the crazes died out, and people just want something that works...they turn here.
