Houston -- Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, has placed third in PETA's annual ranking of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Ballparks. Not a ballpark that rests on its laurels, Minute Maid Park locked up the honor with a stellar lineup of vegetarian specialties that includes hearty veggie dogs, Thai noodle salad, veggie burritos, sun-dried tomato rigatoni, hummus and vegetable wraps, vegetarian sushi, fruit smoothies, rice and beans, and organic baby-vegetable ratatouille.
"Carlos Lee might be coming up empty at the plate, but Astros fans are loading up their plates with the variety of delicious meat-free options that are available at Minute Maid Park," says PETA Director Dan Shannon. "With this lineup, Astros fans can look forward to slashing 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 mock crab-cake salad (also available as a sandwich or wrap), protein-packed 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), 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 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.
