Norfolk, Va. – America’s favorite pastime has something new to offer longtime fans craving an animal-friendly bite in the stands, as PETA unveils its list of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Major League Ballparks for 2015 as well as the Top Five Vegetarian-Friendly AA Minor League Ballparks. Each team will receive a framed certificate from PETA, whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat.”
“Every stadium on PETA’s lists has hit a grand slam with its wide assortment of tasty vegan dishes,” says PETA’s senior campaign strategist, Kenneth Montville. “Now, caring people across the country can chow down on delicious animal-friendly foods while cheering on their favorite teams.”
The Los Angeles Dodgers’ Dodger Stadium took top honors, thanks to its delectable vegan nacho cheese sauce, followed by the Philadelphia Phillies’ Citizens Bank Park in second place, the Washington Nationals’ Nationals Park in third, the San Diego Padres’ Petco Park in fourth, and the New York Mets’ Citi Field in fifth. Rounding out the top 10 are the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park, the Pittsburgh Pirates’ PNC Park, the Colorado Rockies’ Coors Field, the Boston Red Sox’s Fenway Park, and the Chicago White Sox’s U.S. Cellular Field.
PETA also ranked the top vegetarian-friendly AA minor league ballparks. Leading the pack is the New Britain Rock Cats’ New Britain Stadium, followed by the Tulsa Drillers’ ONEOK Field, the Biloxi Shuckers’ MGM Park, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos’ Pensacola Bayfront Stadium, and the Erie SeaWolves’ Jerry Uht Park.
