Boston -- Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, has earned an honorable mention in PETA's annual ranking of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Ballparks. Fenway added some great vegetarian options to its list this year: a hearty veggie burger and a protein-packed veggie dog. The park continues to offer tasty standbys from previous years, such as meatless burritos and meatless tacos.
"With the addition of John Lackey, Adrian Beltre, and delicious veggie dogs and veggie burgers, the Red Sox had quite an off-season," says PETA Director Dan Shannon. "With this lineup, fans can load up their plates with a variety of meat-free options and at the same time reduce their risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes for many seasons to come."
For the fourth straight year, the Philadelphia Phillies' Citizens Bank Park took top honors--this time for adding a delicious vegan breaded chicken sandwich to a roster that includes a vegetarian crab-cake salad (also available as a sandwich or wrap), veggie burgers and veggie dogs, a Southwestern black-bean burger, a veggie steak sandwich, a mock chicken steak, the new vegan Rice Crispie treat, and more. Rounding out the top 10 are AT&T Park (San Francisco Giants), Minute Maid Park (Houston Astros), Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers), Coors Field (Colorado Rockies), Turner Field (Atlanta Braves), PETCO Park (San Diego Padres), Angel Stadium (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim), Miller Park (Milwaukee Brewers), and Target Field (Minnesota Twins) and Progressive Field (Cleveland Indians), which tied for 10th place.
Top athletes across the sports spectrum--including slugger Prince Fielder, Olympic great Carl Lewis, NFL running back Ricky Williams, and mixed martial arts fighter Mac Danzig--have kicked the meat habit, and a trip to ballpark concession stands confirms that fans are getting the message too.
Each major-league team to make the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Ballparks list or be given an honorable mention will receive a framed certificate from PETA. For more information and to see the complete list of winners, please click here.
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
