Boston – 2014 marks the 13th straight year that PETA has picked the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Major League Ballparks, and there’s good news for Red Sox fans: Fenway Park has grabbed the number eight spot in the nation.

“Home to the reigning world champion Boston Red Sox, historic Fenway Park is also home to some wicked-good vegetarian eats! Boca burgers, veggie dogs, and penne pasta salad are guaranteed to keep the Fenway faithful on their feet,” 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.”

Red Sox devotees have a powerful lineup of meat-free options to choose from—and most of them are vegan. They include the portobello sandwich, the Boca Original Vegan veggie burger, the superb Yves veggie dog, and hummus and pretzel chips.

The San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park took top honors, thanks in part to its Field Roast frankfurter and its portobello mushroom sandwich. Rounding out the top five are Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia Phillies), PNC Park (Pittsburgh Pirates), Citi Field (New York Mets), and Nationals Park (Washington Nationals).

PETA also ranked AAA minor league teams. Leading the pack is the Omaha Storm Chasers’ Werner Park, where fans can chow down on black-bean burgers (which can be made vegan by holding the cheese), a hearty tofu hot dog, and the Philly Cheese Phake, which consists of Gardein’s beef-free and chicken-free strips and can be made vegan by omitting the cheese.

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