The overwhelming majority of my sportswriting work now is for MLB.com, although I do pick up a gig somewhere else once in awhile if it sounds fun. I cover several series a year for MLB.com, typically filling in for visiting beat writers when they don’t make a trip to Arlington. I’ve been freelancing for MLB.com since 2011 and have had the pleasure of covering more than 20 different teams at Globe Life Park.
I wrote a book called “Longhorn Football Legends” – it’s available on Amazon right now. Here’s the blurb from Amazon:
Every UT Longhorn fan will want to grab hold of this backpocket-sized book about the beginnings and the not-so-distant past of his or her revered team. To those straining to grasp what all the fuss is about, Longhorn Football Legends is for them too. Author Dave Sessions is a UT Ex but also a professional sports writer unafraid to lay bare some of the squad’s most embarrassing episodes, like when a 30-year-old imposter from California talked his way into a football scholarship and onto the field. And Sessions deftly retells the team’s proudest moments. Revisit the greatest games and championships, then see how a UT student dognapped Reveille, Texas A&M’s beloved mascot, after learning it was the only such symbol in the Southwest Conference never to have been stolen. Legends covers the rivalries, the historic seasons, the standout players and the larger-than-life coaches (with numerous citations of Darrell Royal s best ”Royalisms”). It tells the stories behind Bevo, ”Hook em Horns,” and the Longhorn logo that seems to adorn every other car in Texas.”
I did a lot of work for DFW OT, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s defunct iPad app. Click the images to view PDFs of my stories.
