At 6' 2" and weighing 245 pounds, Molina is taller than his older brother Bengie Molina, and his younger brother Yadier Molina. They are the only three brothers in MLB history to all win World Series championship rings. Bengie and Jose did it together as members of the 2002 Anaheim Angels, and Yadier with the 2006 Cardinals. Jose later went on to win a ring with the 2009 New York Yankees. Jose Molina is also known for having hit the last home run in the original Yankee Stadium.
