Denver – As baseball fever sweeps the nation, there’s good news for animal-friendly Rockies fans: Coors Field has landed the number eight spot on PETA’s list of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Major League Ballparks of 2015. Rockies fans rave about the loaded baked potato (hold the cheese and sour cream to make it vegan), veggie hoagies, veggie dogs and burgers, fresh fruit kebabs, and salad bar with up to 36 toppings.
“Coors Field hit the ground running this year with tasty meat-free treats,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Each park ranked in PETA’s top 10 offers a tasty variety of veg-friendly foods that are helping to set the standard for parks across the country.”
The Los Angeles Dodgers’ Dodger Stadium took top honors, 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 Boston Red Sox’s Fenway Park, and the Chicago White Sox’s U.S. Cellular Field.
PETA also ranked the top five 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.
Coors Field will receive a framed certificate from PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat.”
