San Diego -- PETCO Park, home of the San Diego Padres, has placed seventh in PETA's annual ranking of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Ballparks. Not a ballpark that rests on its laurels, PETCO Park locked up the honor with a stellar lineup of vegetarian specialties that includes hearty veggie burgers and veggie dogs, veggie burritos, vegetarian sushi, roasted corn, and hummus and veggies.
"PETA is no fan of PETCO, but we're cheering for all the animal-free options at the Padres' stadium," says PETA Director Dan Shannon. "With the variety of meat-free options that are available at the ballpark, Padres 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 vegetarian 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), Minute Maid Park (Houston Astros), 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.
