Arlington, Texas – The results are in for PETA’s 2019 ranking of the Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Ballparks, and the Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park in Arlington—which took second place last year—has slid into first place.
Visitors to Globe Life Park can enjoy its Ballpark Vegan concession stand, which dishes up vegan versions of ballpark favorites, including nachos topped with Beyond Meat crumbles and melted nondairy cheese, vegan chicken wraps, chili with Beyond Meat crumbles, tamales, Beyond Sausages with grilled onions, and much more.
“The Rangers may play in the heart of ‘cattle country,’ but hearty meat-free cheeseburgers and spicy street tacos have turned the team’s stadium into a vegan paradise,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Globe Life Park and the other ballparks on PETA’s list are covering all the bases when it comes to meeting the nationwide 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.
Coming in second is another ballpark with a dedicated vegan stand: the Mets’ Citi Field, where Marty’s V Burger dishes up a variety of delicious veggie burgers and 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.
