Benjamin José "Bengie" Molina (born July 20, 1974, in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico), nicknamed "Big Money", is a former Major League Baseball catcher.

He is the older brother of major league catchers José Molina and Yadier Molina. After being initially regarded as a "good glove, no hit" catcher, Molina developed into a free-swinging power hitter in addition to retaining his solid defense. However, at 5' 11" and weighing 225 pounds, he is regarded as one of the slowest baserunners in the game.
