Yadier Molina’s wife Wanda Molina met her future husband in high school in Puerto Rico. Yadier Molina married the former Wanda Torres in 2007. The couple lives in Caseyville, IL during the baseball season and Vega Alta, Puerto Rico during the offseason. They have two children together; son Yanuell born in October 20, and daughter Arianna born on July 4, 2010.
Yadier Molina’s wife Wanda Molina has meshed well with the entire family, helping to protect everyone’s feelings when SportsCenter gets a little out of hand. In 2010. Yadier’s brother Bengie was mocked by ESPN’s Sportscenter for the length of time it took him to round the bases, while taking a couple jabs at his weight in the process. This time, however, it crossed the line for the normally reserved Bengie. On his own MLB sponsored blog, Bengie wrote about his treatment (and I swear this addresses what this has to do with Wanda…):
I know I’m a public figure and I just have to take my lumps. But I would like those people at ESPN who, from a safe distance, make fun of players for a cheap laugh, to remember that players are actual people. With wives and mothers and fathers and children and brothers and sisters. My mother saw the clip. She doesn’t speak English so she asked (brother and St. Louis catcher) Yadier (Molina)’s wife what the announcer was saying. Yadier’s wife didn’t want to tell her. My mom was pretty upset. She didn’t understand why they were making fun of my running when there are so many other things I do every day to help the team win. I told her I didn’t understand it, either.
