If you are a pitcher and have a Molina tending the backstop, you will be well taken care of. If you are wary of the claim, consider that the triumvirate of Bengie, Jose and Yadier are the only three brothers to each have a World Series ring.
If Lil Wayne's story about the Mannings didn't resonate, The Sun Sentinel's Mike Berardino wrote the following about the Molina family in 2005:
Benjamin Molina, their father, would spend 10 hours a day working as a technician at a Westinghouse factory in their hometown of Vega Alta, Puerto Rico. He would spend all 10 of those hours on his feet, never sitting down.
Then he would stagger home by 4:30 in the afternoon, grab a bite to eat and head straight to Jesus Mambe Kuilan Park across the street with his three boys.
There Benjamin Molina would teach the fundamentals of baseball to his boys. For hours. Until dusk. Until they couldn't see the ball anymore. And then for a few minutes longer.
Bengie Molina got his World Series hardware in 2002 while playing with his brother Jose on the Angels. Jose would go on to grab another ring while with the Yankees in 2009.
While coming up short in 2013, Yadier Molina still managed to procure the family another interesting accolade this past postseason.
One of the best all-around players in baseball made it back to the World Series. As MLB.com's Matthew Leach and David Venn write, "For the third consecutive year, one of the three catching brothers will be behind the plate in the Fall Classic, representing his team and his native Puerto Rico."
That's nothing short of remarkable.
