Erie, pa – As baseball fever sweeps the nation, there’s good news for animal-friendly Erie SeaWolves fans: Jerry Uht Park has landed the number five spot in its debut appearance on PETA’s newest list of the Top Five Vegetarian-Friendly Minor League Ballparks. Delicious meat-free concession favorites include tasty veggie burgers, a made-to-order burrito bowl (hold the meat and cheese to make it vegan), and the Fresh Salad of the Home Stand—also vegan without cheese.

“Jerry Uht Park hit a homerun this year with delicious plant-based fare,” says Kenneth Montville, PETA’s senior campaign strategist. “It’s easier than ever to choose healthy animal-free options while cheering on teams across the country—and PETA is calling on others to get in on the rising trend now.”

The number one spot in the minors goes to the New Britain Rock Cats’ New Britain Stadium, followed by the Tulsa Drillers’ ONEOK Field in second, the Biloxi Shuckers’ MGM Park in third, and the Pensacola Blue Wahoos’ Pensacola Bayfront Stadium in fourth. Top honors in the majors went to Dodger Stadium, home of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Jerry Uht Park will receive a framed certificate from PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat.”

“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
