Molina Brothers Are “First Family” Of Catchers

Bengie, Jose, and Yadier Molina have each reached the pinnacle of Major League Baseball–winning World Series championships. Each of them is a catcher, so you’d have to vote for them as baseball’s “first family” of catchers.

Their father Benjamin Sr. did not play professional baseball, but he was instrumental in developing each of his sons to reach the big leagues. In fact, he had a huge impact in his native Puerto Rico in amateur baseball and was acknowledged for his efforts by being inducted into the Puerto Rican Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame.

Bengie is now a coach for the Texas Rangers, while Jose plays for the Tampa Bay Rays and Yadier is an All-Star catcher with the St. Louis Cardinals.
