Pawtucket, R.I. – 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 Pawtucket Red Sox fans: McCoy Stadium has taken the number three spot on PETA’s list.
“McCoy Stadium has really stepped up to the plate and made all Pawtucket Red Sox fans feel welcome,” says PETA Director Ryan Huling. “And by offering so many different vegetarian and vegan foods, the park is providing everyone with healthy options when they go out to the old ballgame.”
Great-tasting healthy fare at the stadium includes hummus and pita chips, fresh fruit salad, fried green-bean straws, veggie burgers, and veggie dogs.
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 (again, vegans can just hold the cheese). Coca-Cola Field (Buffalo Bisons) in New York took second place, and rounding out the winners are Cheney Stadium (Tacoma Rainiers) in Washington and Herschel Greer Stadium (Nashville Sounds) in Tennessee. Honorable mentions go to AutoZone Park (Memphis Redbirds) in Tennessee and Raley Field (Sacramento River Cats) in California.
In the major leagues, AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, took top honors, thanks in part to its tasty Field Roast frankfurter and portobello mushroom sandwich.
