PETA Ranks Vegetarian-Friendly Major-League Stadiums

Animal-friendly baseball fans don’t have to settle for popcorn, peanuts, and cracker jacks anymore. They can score veggie dogs, faux steak sandwiches, and vegan versions of other stadium favorites at many big-league ballparks. Check out PETA’s list of the top 10 vegetarian-friendly major-league ballparks of 2010 to see where your team ranks in the standings:

  1. Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia Phillies)
    It’s hard to say whether the Phils’ biggest off-season acquisition was ace Roy Halladay or the new faux chicken sandwich and vegan rice crispie treats offered at concession stands. Added to other meat-free fare, including veggie burgers, Southwestern black-bean burgers, veggie dogs, faux steak sandwiches, veggie chicken steaks, mock crab cakes, hummus and pita chips, and fresh fruit, Citizens Bank Park is the first undisputed dynasty in the history of PETA’s prestigious rankings.
  2. AT&T Park (San Francisco Giants)
    Vegetarian meals are flying off AT&T Park’s concessions stands faster than a Tim Lincecum fastball. Meat-free Giants fans can power up with a protein-packed veggie dog or Gardenburger along with a brand-new mixed vegetable sandwich, a portobello mushroom sandwich, a California roll, a vegetable roll, vegetable burritos and tamales, a broccoli tofu platter, vegetable chow fun, and more.
  3. Minute Maid Park (Houston Astros)
    Carlos Lee might be coming up empty at the plate, but fans are loading their plates with veggie burritos, quinoa tabbouleh, and sun-dried tomato rigatoni, all new for the 2010 season. Minute Maid Park also serves up hearty veggie dogs, Thai noodle salad, hummus and vegetable wraps, vegetarian sushi, fruit smoothies, rice and beans, and organic baby-vegetable ratatouille.
  4. Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers)
    Jeremy Bonderman is healthy once again, and Tigers fans can be, too, by putting down the fatty hot dogs and choosing one of Comerica Park’s delicious, nutritious vegetarian options, including black-bean burgers, vegetable fried rice, and a hummus plate as well as veteran favorites such as veggie burgers, veggie dogs, and vegetarian taco salads, stir-fries, and sushi.
  5. Coors Field (Colorado Rockies)
    It used to be that finding satisfying vegetarian food at ballparks was harder than spelling “Tulowitzki,” but nowadays smart folks—like the concessions staff at Coors Field—are responding in a big way to the booming demand for humane, healthy meat-free ballpark fare. Rockies fans can chow down on veggie burgers, dogs, wraps, burritos, kabobs, and paninis as well as fresh salads and fruit, roasted portobello sandwiches, and made-to-order potato skins.
  6. Turner Field (Atlanta Braves)
    With the arrival of Jason Heyward, the Braves’ future is looking bright, and fans can make sure that they’re around to enjoy it by going vegetarian and slashing their risk of heart attack, cancer, and diabetes. Turner Field now has everything from veggie dogs and meatless tacos and burritos to baked beans, Asian noodles, and organic zucchini dip.
  7. PETCO Park (San Diego Padres)
    PETA is not a fan of PETCO—the massive corporate giant that buys animals from abusive factory farms that PETA has exposed over and over again—but we’re cheering for all the animal-free options at the Padres’ stadium. With veggie burgers and veggie dogs, vegetarian sushi rolls, roasted corn, vegetarian burritos, and hummus and vegetables, there’s plenty of good eats for animal-friendly fans to enjoy.
  8. Angel Stadium (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim)
    No matter what the team is called, fans can agree that Angel Stadium is heavenly for vegetarians. The stadium has an all-star lineup of vegetarian options, including veggie Chicago dogs, edamame, Gardenburgers, California cucumber rolls, veggie paninis, bean burritos, roasted vegetable sandwiches, and more.
  9. Miller Park (Milwaukee Brewers)
    Vegetarian slugger and reigning Home Run Derby champ Prince Fielder is proof that players don’t need to eat meat to go yard, and fans of the Brew Crew don’t need to go far to find great-tasting meatless meals. The stadium sells veggie dogs, veggie wraps, baked potatoes, made-to-order pasta, build-your-own burritos, portobello mushroom focaccia sandwiches, and other vegetarian foods.
  10. (tie) Target Field (Minnesota Twins)
    With vegan pitcher Pat Neshek back soon, Kirby the Kestrel on the foul pole, and veggie dogs, veggie burgers, veggie burritos and tacos, fruit kabobs, and other vegetarian items in the concession stands, the new Target Field is a pretty animal-friendly place.
  11. (tie) Progressive Field (Cleveland Indians)
    The Indians haven’t gained much ground this season, but Progressive Field has shown that it’s pretty, well … progressive. The stadium has expanded its roster to include veggie dogs, veggie subs, wild grain and tofu curry, and veggie pasta in addition to veggie wraps, fruit cups, and roasted vegetables.

    Dear Steve I live in Seattle I’ve been to a decent amount of Mariners games and I cannot think of a single vendor that sells hot dogs that isn’t selling veggiedogs as well. I had one that last time I went to a game and it was delicious. Although pretty pricey.

    Some one asked perhaps on another blog who cares that we are 10 on Peta’s vegetarian friendly scoreboard? My answer I do. Who cares? Anyone who is concerned about the environment and animal suffering. Who cares? Anyone who is concerned about global warming and their health. I hope the “WHO CARES” person gets this message. He ertainly has not caught up with the benefits and NEED of a vegetarian lifestyle. By the way the world would not be able to sustain the meateating practices of the Western countries if they were able to adopt our eating lifestyle. Something would have to give and that something would probably be meat.

  • allie-oops says:

    Yes! Citifield the METS do have veggie dogs and burgers plus french fries.

  • Robert says:

    I love you Peta but in order to be taken more seriously you’ve got to start calling them Ballparks. Stadiums are very few now.

  • Lacy Loar says:

    We have to bring our own goodies to the Tampa Bay Rays games and that is a shame with such yummie fare listed at other stadiums. Any suggestions on how to get the concession people to offer animalfree food? We have tried calling but so far no change!

  • Kim Ward says:

    I go to Safeco field in Seattle every year for a game I’m from Vancouver BC and they never have veggie dogs at the concession.

  • Steve says:

    The New York Mets now have spicy veggie dogs and veggie burgers at their concession stands. I had the hot dogs this past week. They were great! However if you are going to order them place an order and come back to pick them up in 10 minutes same thing at the KC Royals Kaufman stadium. They may be making them to order which is somewhat of a disappointment. Of course there are fries and lots of other snacks as well.

  • Laura says:

    Where is Camden Yards too????

  • Ashley says:

    Hmm! I don’t see Yankee Stadium on here. Another reason they suck at life.. Go Sox!

  • Ashleigh says:

    This is great to know! I never knew Fenway had any kind of vegetarian foods! Now I guess my boyfriend and I have to go to a game we’ve been wanting to go forever! I wish I knew what kind of vegeburgers they were using though. I’m allergic to mushroom so I always have to be careful when buying vegepatties. So far the only brand I’ve ever found without mushrooms in the ingredients is Bocca Burgers. If anyone has some brands that are shroom free please shoot me a message! My boyfriend and I are always looking for new things to try! Ash

    So glad to see Target Field on this list. Prior to Opening Day I had heard that they were serving a veggie dog but couldn’t find the stand selling it. Finally at a gameandahalf against the Yankees last week I found it. It’s very tasty and I like it a lot more than their veggie burger. They also offer veggie stirfry at a cart on the lower concourse. If you are a vegetarianvegan and a Twins fan please show your support by purchasing these food items. As long as there are enough people buying they will continue to offer and expand on their veg items.

    I love Safeco Field. Yes the Mariners have broken my heart this season but the food is killer. They are more than willing to make any meal into a vegan dish if possible. Kudos to them!!

  • Erin says:

    Tom I just went to a game at the new Yankee Stadium. They had a salad bar veggie burgers fresh fruit and a lot of other things. Just becuase they didn’t make the list doesn’t mean vegan NY’s have no options at a baseball game. There were a lot more options then I expected.

  • Katherine says:

    Looking forward to a veggie dog at Turner Field this summer! Who knew! Thanks for posting!!!

  • James says:

    I went to 33 home games at PNC park and have only eaten the veggie burger fries and pretzels. Veggie wrap? Never seen that. Pittsburgh in NOT a very vegetarianfriendly city. I was shocked just to find the veggie burger.

  • Amber Sexton says:

    The new Yankee stadium has a stand where you can get asian style noodles and you can get tofu noodles. There is also vegetable sushi. They actually have a salad bar and also a fruit stand with whole fruit. don’t forget the baseball tradition of peanuts in the shell So it’s not a mecca for fake meat but there is definitely plenty of vegan food. Also worth noting they allow you to bring in your own food. Which I often do because it’s extremely expensive to eat at the stadium.

  • Tom says:

    Where are the NY stadiums???? NYers are so proud of their forward thinking with their vegan places to eat we should be ashamed we can’t even go to a ball game.

  • soulinmyfist says:

    I’ve been going to Angels Stadium for years and I’ve never seen veggie dogs or veggie burgers or any of these lovely items you mention… which stand are you going to?! Please advise!
