Buffalo, N.Y. – Baseball season is in full swing, and that means it’s time for PETA’s ranking of the Top Five Vegetarian-Friendly AAA Minor League Ballparks. And there’s good news for Bisons fans: In its debut appearance in PETA’s lineup, Coca-Cola Field has grabbed the number two spot.

“Coca-Cola Field lets health-conscious and vegetarian fans enjoy a great meal while cheering on the Bisons,” says PETA Associate Director Ryan Huling. “Every year, we see more and more vegan options offered at stadiums across the country, which proves that baseball fans are, indeed, on the ball.”

Bisons faithful have a powerful lineup of meat-free fare to choose from, including a veggie sandwich loaded with fresh vegetables, hummus, and roasted red peppers from the “Healthy Zone”; a Pettibones veggie burger; and a fresh Mediterranean salad (vegans, hold the cheese).

The number one spot in the minors goes to the Omaha Storm Chasers’ Werner Park, where fans can chow down on black-bean burgers (vegans, hold the cheese), a hearty veggie dog, and the Philly Cheese Phake (vegans, hold the cheese). Rounding out the winners are McCoy Stadium (Pawtucket Red Sox) in Rhode Island, Cheney Stadium (Tacoma Rainiers) in Washington, and Herschel Greer Stadium (Nashville Sounds) in Tennessee. Honorable mentions go to AutoZone Park (Memphis Redbirds) in Tennessee and Raley Field (Sacramento River Cats) in California.

In the major leagues, AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, took top honors, thanks in part to the delicious Field Roast frankfurter and portobello mushroom sandwich.

The Bisons will receive a framed certificate from PETA. To view the complete rankings, please see PETA’s minor league and major league blog posts.

“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
