Home of the Beavers Climbs to Second Place in 2010 Rankings

Portland, Ore. -- PGE Park, home of the Portland Beavers, has grabbed second place in PETA's annual rankings of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Ballparks in minor league baseball. The park improved a notch from last year's third-place finish by fielding a stellar lineup that includes Gardenburgers, faux beef Philly sandwiches (available without cheese), protein-packed veggie dogs, and hearty roasted-red-pepper and tomato soup. Catered specialties, which are available in the facility's skyboxes, include a vegetarian sub sandwich with marinated mushrooms (available without cheese), baked beans, salads, and a fruit display.
"The Beavers 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 first-place honors is a rookie to the list, the Hagerstown Suns' Municipal Stadium, which clinched the win with its offerings of veggie dogs and veggie burgers with vegan cheese. 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.
