Hagerstown, Md.-- Municipal Stadium, home of the Hagerstown Suns, has grabbed first place in PETA's annual rankings of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Ballparks in minor-league baseball. Municipal Stadium earned the number-one spot on our list by offering great fare such as protein-packed veggie dogs and veggie burgers, vegan cheeseburgers, pepper and onion Philly "cheesesteak" sandwiches with vegan mozzarella cheese, and vegan chili cheese dogs. Suns fans can also snack on fresh fruit and vegetable sub sandwiches from the concession stands.
"The Suns have really knocked one out of the park when it comes to offering delicious vegetarian options," says PETA Director Dan Shannon. "Loyal fans can enjoy delicious food and cheer on their favorite team while they safeguard their health, protect the Earth, and save animals' lives--all at the same time."
Grabbing second-place honors is the Portland Beavers' PGE Park, which improved a notch from last year's third-place finish by offering Gardenburgers, faux beef Philly sandwiches (available without cheese), veggie dogs, and hearty roasted-red-pepper and tomato soup. Rounding out the top 10 are Frontier Field (Rochester Red Wings), Durham Bulls Athletic Park (Durham Bulls), ONEOK Field (Tulsa Drillers), Victory Field (Indianapolis Indians), Cheney Stadium (Tacoma Rainiers), Isotopes Park (Albuquerque Isotopes), Regions Park (Birmingham Barons), and MerchantsAuto.com Stadium (New Hampshire Fisher Cats).
Top athletes across the sports spectrum--including Milwaukee Brewers slugger Prince Fielder, Olympic legend Carl Lewis, Miami Dolphins 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 team will receive a framed certificate from PETA. For more information and to view the complete list of winners from both the minor and major leagues, please visit PETA.org.
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.
