 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Bengie Molina retired after finishing the 2010 season with Texas, so he never came through AT&T Park to collect his World Series ring for his contributions early that year.
The club mailed him his prize.
On Friday, Molina returned to San Francisco's waterfront ballpark as first-year assistant hitting coach of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Molina already pondered how he might be received by the sellout crowd during pregame introductions for the Giants' home opener as the city celebrates another World Series championship from 2012.
The 38-year-old Molina spent the 2007-09 seasons with the Giants. He was traded to Texas midway through the 2010 season to make way for Buster Posey, and played against the Giants in the World Series.
