Dallas – The results are in for PETA’s 2018 ranking of the Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Ballparks—and after nabbing the top spot last year, Globe Life Park in Arlington slid down to number two on the list. Competition was fiercer than ever, but the stadium still wowed judges with its Ballpark Vegan concessions cart, which offers a vegan Top N Go Frito Pie (featuring Beyond Meat crumbles and house-made chili and “cheese” sauce), a vegan wrap with Beyond Chicken, and more.
“Thanks to vegan twists on hearty Texan classics, the Texas Rangers are knocking it out of the park with delicious animal-friendly stadium snacks,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “All the compassionate ballparks on PETA’s list are proving that vegan eating is as American as baseball and apple pie.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that going vegan would afford baseball players and their fans the time to enjoy more ballgames, since eating meat and other animal-derived foods has been conclusively linked to a higher risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer. In addition, every vegan spares more than 100 animals a year a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries.
Nabbing the top spot on PETA’s list is Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins, where fans can enjoy Sriracha brats from The Herbivorous Butcher, vegan cheese pizza, and more. Third place went to the Cleveland Indians’ Progressive Field, which offers a selection of veggie burgers and franks as well as vegan grilled cheese and ice cream.
