Molina comes from a baseball family with a father who put his life for his sons and baseball.  He is an excellent clutch hitter and his career in the St. Louis Cardinals is going on to 12 years.
Molina has an amazing understanding for the game which stems from having a father who pushed him. Also having two older brothers in the same profession has been a great asset.
