Pensacola, Fla. – As baseball fever sweeps the nation, there’s good news for animal-friendly Pensacola Blue Wahoos fans: Pensacola Bayfront Stadium has landed the number four 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 black bean burgers, veggie sushi rolls, fresh fruit smoothies (hold the yogurt to make it vegan), and a tasty assortment of salads.

“Pensacola Bayfront Stadium is on the ball 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 place, and the Biloxi Shuckers’ MGM Park in third. Rounding out the top five is the Erie SeaWolves’ Jerry Uht Park. Top honors in the majors went to Dodger Stadium, home of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
