James Cramer is probably best-known as the host of CNBC’s Mad Money. He has also published at least nine books, mostly about financial responsibility. He was born in the Philadelphia-area, and still lives in New Jersey today.
Cramer revealed that one of his first jobs was as an ice cream vendor in Veterans Stadium for Phillies games, as reported by NBC Sports Philadelphia.
He never abandoned his home-town team, either. Cramer threw out the first pitch in a May, 2015 game against the Diamondbacks. And he wasn’t shy about how great a pitch it was.
He is vocal about his love for Philadelphia, once saying that Philly was similar to “an incredibly undervalued stock” (via Phillymag.com).
