David Schoenfield

Senior Writer, ESPN

About

David Schoenfield started at ESPN.com as an editor in the pre-dawn days of the Internet in 1995 – when the site was still called ESPNet SportsZone – and has been a senior writer covering baseball since 2011, often focusing on a fan-friendly approach to statistics. In his career, he has covered 10 World Series and 11 All-Star Games. His earliest exposure to analytics came in 1982, when he read “The Bill James Baseball Abstract” for the first time.

Prior to covering baseball as a writer, Schoenfield worked as the site’s baseball editor in the late 1990s and early 2000s, working with Hall of Fame writers such as Peter Gammons, Jayson Stark and Tim Kurkjian, and early leaders in the analytics movement like Rob Neyer and the group at Baseball Prospectus. He then served as an editor for Page 2, ESPN’s popular sports and pop culture section, and had a short stint as interim soccer editor during the 2010 World Cup. His journalism career began at The Seattle Times, answering phones and covering prep sports.

When he’s not writing about baseball or watching it, he can often be found on the trails of Northwest Connecticut with his wife, Joy, and two dogs, Lucca and Sammie.
