[edit] Biographical Information

Bengie Molina is the brother of catchers Jose Molina and Yadier Molina. Bengie and Jose were teammates on the Anaheim Angels when they won the 2002 World Series.

When Molina hit one of his few triples with the Toronto Blue Jays on August 17, 2006, the whole Blue Jays dugout started laughing. Molina said he saw them out of the corner of his eye and started laughing hard as well. He had not hit a triple since 2000.

Playing for the San Francisco Giants on May 7, 2007, Molina hit a disputed two-run homer in the fifth inning against the Mets then drilled a 3-run shot later in the inning. He was the first Giant since Willie McCovey 30 years earlier to hit two home runs in one inning.

In 2013, he was appointed assistant hitting coach with the St. Louis Cardinals, joining the team on which his brother Yadier was a star player, but only stayed with the team for one season.
