San Francisco – The results are in for PETA’s 2019 ranking of the Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Ballparks, and after falling off the list last year, the San Francisco Giants’ Oracle Park has slid into fourth place. The stadium’s vegan-friendly offerings include a vegan twist on San Francisco’s famous Super Duper burgers, along with franks and burgers by Field Roast, nachos with vegan cheese, falafel, dolmas, and much more.

“The plain veggie dogs of yesteryear won’t cut the mustard with today’s baseball fans, who are hungry for the tasty dairy-free cheesy nachos and hearty vegan cheeseburgers being served up at the Giants’ home games,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Oracle Park and the other 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 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.

Topping this year’s list is the Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park in Arlington, with its vegan versions of Texas classics like frito pie and street tacos with Beyond Meat crumbles. Nabbing second spot is the 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.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. To view the complete ranking, 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
