Arlington, Texas – The Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park might be located in the heart of cattle country, but it leads PETA’s list of this year’s Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Ballparks. To nab the winning spot—and earn its first appearance on the list in nine years—the stadium upped its game with an all-vegan food cart that offers nachos topped with dairy-free cheese, chili with Beyond Beef Feisty Crumble, black bean tamales, and, of course, burgers and franks.
“Globe Life Park has gone to bat for animals and compassionate baseball fans alike,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is delivering top honors to the Texas Rangers’ home field for knocking it out of the park with creative animal-friendly twists on classic stadium food.”
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 saves more than 100 animals a year from a terrifying death in today’s industrialized meat, egg, and dairy industries.
Globe Life Park will receive a framed certificate from PETA. To view the complete rankings, please see PETA’s 2017 Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Ballparks blog post.
