Nashville, Tenn. – Baseball season is in full swing, and that means it’s time for PETA’s ranking of the Top Five Vegetarian-Friendly AAA Minor League Ballparks. And there’s good news for Sounds fans: This year, Herschel Greer Stadium has moved up in the standings to the number five spot.

“The best way for fans to ensure that they’ll be around to cheer on the Sounds for many healthy years to come is to step up to the plate now by going vegan,” 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.”

Sounds faithful have a powerful lineup of meat-free fare to choose from, including veggie burgers and veggie dogs, made-to-order vegan grilled veggie wraps, and an array of salads.

The number one spot in the minors goes to the Omaha Storm Chasers’ Werner Park, where fans can chow down on black-bean burgers (vegans, hold the cheese), a hearty veggie dog, and the Philly Cheese Phake (vegans, hold the cheese). Rounding out the winners are Coca-Cola Field (Buffalo Bisons) in New York, McCoy Stadium (Pawtucket Red Sox) in Rhode Island, and Cheney Stadium (Tacoma Rainiers) in Washington. Honorable mentions go to AutoZone Park (Memphis Redbirds) in Tennessee and Raley Field (Sacramento River Cats) in California.

Top honors in the majors went to AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, thanks in part to its delicious Field Roast frankfurter and its portobello mushroom sandwich.

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