Molly Knight wrote about baseball for ESPN the Magazine for eight seasons. Her work has also appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Glamour, SELF, Baseball Prospectus, and Variety. A native of Los Angeles and lifelong Dodgers fan, she lives in LA. The Best Team Money Can Buy is her first book.
"From the outside looking in, the Dodgers have been a bubbling
cauldron of personality, talent and moods, with the occasional
dollop of jealousy. In The Best Team Money Can Buy, it's as
if Molly Knight ushers you behind the closed clubhouse doors to see
it for yourself."--Buster Olney, ESPN
"In The Best Team Money Can Buy, Molly Knight lifts the curtain on one of the premier franchises in sports, taking readers beyond the field and into the clubhouse, board rooms and homes of some of the most compelling athletes of this generation. It is a rocky path--but a rollicking ride--for a glamour team bankrolled by billionaire owners who lifted the team from bankruptcy and will try anything to win a championship. With keen observations culled from tireless reporting, Knight deftly paints an intimate, nuanced portrait of the people behind it all, bringing these characters to life as nobody has before."--Tyler Kepner, national baseball writer for The New York Times
