The 27-year-old Carlos Rivera Pagan is a one-man talent show: his background includes being controller at the Karlan Group Corporation and vice president of Eco Green Light, Corp., he was a 13th round pick by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2000, and he is a magna cum laude graduate of Puerto Rico’s Bayamon Central University.
Carlos Rivera Pagan told IronMind®, “I’m an active baseball player since I was 6 years old . . . I can see my improvement on my grip by watching balls fly much farther than I usually hit them.”
And grip strength he has: Carlos Rivera Pagan said that he closed the No. 2 Captains of Crush® Gripper the first time he tried and his official referee, Carlos Fernandez, said that, “After the certification on closing the #3 Gripper, he proceeded to do the same with his left hand (a few times). It was very impressive and the audience loved it.”
IronMind® would like to say a special thanks to Carlos Fernandez and the Golden Gym for their help with this certification - we appreciate it.
Congratulations to Carlos F. Rivera Pagan: You name has been added to the official certification list for the No. 3 Captains of Crush® Gripper!
