Norfolk, Va. – The results are in for PETA’s 2019 ranking of the Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Ballparks, and after coming in second last year, the Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park in Arlington has slid into first place.

Globe Life Park continues to impress with its Ballpark Vegan concession stand, which serves up vegan twists on Texas classics like frito pie, Beyond Sausages with grilled onions, street tacos with Beyond Beef crumbles, and more. Nabbing the second-place spot is the New York Mets’ Citi Field, which welcomed its first-ever all-vegan food stand, Marty’s V Burger—and in addition to a variety of delicious veggie burgers, 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 as well as vegan cheese pizzas.

“The plain veggie dogs of yesteryear don’t cut the mustard with today’s baseball fans, who want melty vegan cheese on their pizzas and spicy tempeh in their tacos,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “From their hearty vegan cheeseburgers to their refreshing nondairy ice cream, the ballparks on PETA’s list are covering all the bases when it comes to meeting the demand for animal-friendly fare.”

PETA notes that vegan ballpark fare hits a home run for animals, as each person who goes vegan spares nearly 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.

Next on PETA’s list are the San Francisco Giants’ Oracle Park at number four, the Cleveland Indians’ Progressive Field at number five, and Yankee Stadium at number six. They’re followed by Dodger Stadium in seventh place, the Seattle Mariners’ T-Mobile Park in eighth, the Kansas City Royals’ Kauffman Stadium in ninth, and the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Chase Field in 10th.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. To view the complete rankings, please visit PETA.org or click here.

“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
