Los Angeles – The results are in for PETA’s 2019 ranking of the Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Ballparks, and after falling out of the top 10 last year, Dodger Stadium has slid into seventh place. The stadium’s vegan-friendly offerings include Beyond Sausages and Burrito Basebowls, which feature black beans, pico de gallo, and more.
“The plain veggie dogs of yesteryear won’t cut the mustard with today’s baseball fans, who are clamoring for hearty vegan fare like the spicy tempeh tacos on offer at Dodger Stadium,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Every ballpark on PETA’s list is covering all the bases when it comes to meeting the demand for animal-friendly fare.”
PETA notes that vegan ballpark fare hits a home run for animals, as each person who goes vegan spares more than 200 animals a year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries. Vegans also have a lower risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer than meat-eaters do.
Topping this year’s list is the Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park in Arlington, with its vegan twists on Texas classics like frito pie and street tacos with Beyond Meat crumbles. Nabbing second spot is the Mets’ Citi Field, which welcomed its first-ever all-vegan food stand, Marty’s V Burger—and in addition to a variety of delicious veggie burgers, fans can find Beyond Meat bratwursts, edamame dumplings, Dole Whip sundaes, and more. Rounding out the top three is last year’s winner, the Minnesota Twins’ Target Field, which offers delicious Sriracha “brats” and Italian “sausages” from The Herbivorous Butcher.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. To view the complete ranking, please visit PETA.org or click here.
