The oldest of the three famous Molina brothers in baseball, Bengie Molina, tells Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area his professional playing days are over. Molina hasn't played since last season, but it was never official that he was done playing baseball.

Molina, 37, played thirteen seasons at the professional level with four different teams, including eight with the Angels. A lifetime .274/.307/.411 hitter, Molina was known for being arguably the slowest player in the majors but also one of the better defensive catchers.

Another thing I'll remember Molina for is getting a 2010 World Series ring from the Giants in his last season playing despite losing against them, as he was on the Rangers roster. This was because he was on the Giants earlier in the year, but was traded to the Rangers in July.
