    One of the lasting images in Texas Rangers history is catcher Bengie Molina leaping into the arms of closer Neftali Feliz when the team clinched its first American League pennant. Dodgers Ryan Madson Jersey . Three years later, Molina returned to the Rangers when he was hired as the first base coach and catching instructor on Tuesday. The move completes manager Ron Washingtons staff for next season. "My memories ... everybody being so loose and having fun," Molina said of his short stint with Texas that ended in a World Series loss. "They made me realize how fun the game is supposed to be." Molina finished his 13-season playing career in 2010, when he was acquired from San Francisco in a midseason trade and played in the Rangers first World Series. His final major league game was as Texas catcher in the deciding Game 5 of the World Series won by the Giants. The Rangers also said Tuesday that Triple-A manager Bobby Jones will be the assistant hitting coach. The team had previously announced that Jones, who has spent 26 seasons in the organization, would be promoted to the major league staff with his role to be determined. Molina spent this season as assistant hitting coach for the National League champion St. Louis Cardinals, his first coaching job. Two of his younger brothers are major league catchers, including Yadier, who he worked with while with the Cardinals. Jose Molina is a free agent after playing last season in Tampa Bay. The 39-year Molina said it was an easy decision for him to leave St. Louis for a job with the Rangers he considers a promotion. "Its a great opportunity for me, not only now but in the near future and things like that," Molina said. "I think I have a lot of knowledge in different areas of the game and I can help anybody at any time." As a player, Molina was a .274 career hitter for the Los Angles Angels (1998-2005), Toronto (2006), San Francisco (2007-10), and Rangers (2010). He was a two-time Gold Glove Award winner and was the starting catcher for the Angels in 2002 when they won the World Series. One of his highlights in Texas was a game at Boston on July 16, 2010, when he hit for the cycle. He became only the eighth player since 1900 to hit a grand slam as part of a cycle. "Hes a winner. I think he commands respect and brings credibility," Washington said. Jones served on Rangers manager Johnny Oates staff in 2000 and 2001 and was on Buck Showalters staff in 2006. The 64-year-old Jones won 1,656 games and made 12 post-season appearances as a minor league manager. The Rangers also Tuesday named longtime trainer Jamie Reed as senior director of medical operations, a role in which he will oversee all medical aspects of the organization on the major and minor league levels. Kevin Harmon, going into his 10th season with the team, was promoted to head trainer. Dodgers Rich Hill Jersey . Bryce Harper? He also came into Wednesday without a long ball and hadnt driven in a run. He was hitting .160, had nearly three times as many strikeouts as hits and was dropped to seventh in the batting order. Dodgers Walker Buehler Jersey . The 23-year-old restricted free agent appeared in all 48 games last season, finishing second among all Sabres skaters with 15 goals and 34 points.(SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Kesler will face his former team for the first time on Sunday evening as the Anaheim Ducks play host to the Vancouver Canucks. Kesler was a key contributor for the Canucks after they selected him 23rd overall in 2003 draft. In 655 career games with the franchise, he had 182 goals and 211 assists while also winning the Selke Trophy in 2011. The center also impressed with seven goals and 19 points in 25 playoff games in 2011, when Vancouver made a run to the Cup Finals and lost to Boston in seven games. Seeing how passionate that city was, and the fans, and the hundreds of thousands of people in the streets after every game sticks out, Kesler told Anaheims website of that run to the Finals. I was with the team for 11 years, and going through what I went through with them and that city, its going to be exciting. After Vancouver failed to make the playoffs last season following two straight first-round exits, Kesler was dealt to the Anaheim Ducks on June 27 along with a third-round pick in 2015 for forward Nick Bonino, defenseman Luca Sbisa and a first and third-round selection in 2014. In 15 games with the Ducks this season, the 30-year-old Kesler has three goals and 10 points in 15 games. Hell take on some added responsibility tonight with Corey Perry expected to miss a third straight game with the flu. Perry, who is tied for the NHL lead with 11 goals, missed an overtime loss to the New York Islanders on Wednesday, as did Ryan Getzlaf due to illness. Getzlaf, though, was able to return on Friday and scored in a 3-2 shootout setback to the Arizona Coyotes. Matt Beleskey also lit the lamp for the Ducks, who play the third contest of a four-game homestannd looking to avoid a third straight loss. Dodgers Jackie Robinson Jersey. Frederik Andersen finished the game with 23 stops. We had opportunities to score goals and we werent able to get them by (Arizona goaltender Mike Smith), Getzlaf said. Cam Fowler left the game in the third period with a lower-body injury and is day-to-day. Fellow defenseman Francois Beauchemin also is a game-time decision due to the flu as he missed practice on Saturday along with Perry. Andersen should get the start and has won all three of his previous games versus the Canucks with a 1.00 goals against average. He has stopped 97 of the 100 shots faced. The Canucks eye a bounce back effort tonight after getting blasted 5-1 on Saturday night by the Los Angeles Kings. Vancouver had netted eight goals in winning the first two of a four-game road trip before suffering just its second loss in eight games. Chris Higgins scored the only goal of the game for the Canucks on Saturday and Ryan Miller allowed four goals on 22 shots in two periods of work. Eddie Lack allowed a goal on 14 shots in the third period. We are not good enough right now, we have to get better, Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins said. Having gotten pulled last night, Miller may get a chance to start again tonight. He is 3-3-0 with a 2.56 GAA and .923 save percentage in his career versus the Ducks. Bonino and Sbisa will make their returns to Anaheim tonight. Bonino has been a solid addition to the Canucks with seven goals and 12 points in 15 games, while Sbisa has three points in 14 contests. The Ducks swept their five-game set with the Canucks last season and have won nine of the past 12 meetings overall and three straight as the host. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys ChinaWholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
