Benjamin José "Bengie" Molina (born July 20, 1974, in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico), nicknamed "Big Money" is a Major League Baseball catcher who is currently playing for the Texas Rangers. He is the older brother to José Molina and Yadier Molina. After being initially regarded as a "good glove, no hit" catcher, Molina has developed into a free swinging power hitter in addition to retaining his solid defense. However, at 5'11" and weighing 225 pounds, Molina is regarded as one of the slowest baserunners in the game.
Molina graduated from the Maestro Ladí High School with honors in Vega Alta, Puerto Rico.
Molina played shortstop for Arizona Western College in Yuma, Arizona, in 1991 and 1992.
