Los Angeles – As baseball fever sweeps the nation, there’s good news for animal-friendly Dodgers fans: PETA’s list of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Ballparks of 2015 has rocketed Dodger Stadium straight to the number one spot. Fans rave about the chipotle black-bean veggie burger and the vegan nachos, which come loaded with dairy-free cheese, fresh pico de gallo, and a tomatillo-avocado sauce. Other favorites include vegan vegetable and tofu flatbreads, the vegan corn succotash, and the vegetable sushi wrap.

“From its vegan twists on nachos and hot dogs to its fresh veggie soups and salads, Dodger Stadium offers a powerful line-up of cruelty-free fare to meet any fan’s tastes,” says Kenneth Montville, PETA’s senior campaign strategist. “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.”

Other stadiums at the top of PETA’s list are 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.

Dodgers Stadium will receive a framed certificate from PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat.”

“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
