Pittsburgh – As baseball fever sweeps the nation, there’s good news for animal-friendly Pirates fans: PNC Park has landed the number seven spot on PETA’s list of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Major League Ballparks of 2015. Delicious meat-free favorites include seaweed salads, veggie rolls, and vegan grilled veggie sandwiches served on toasted ciabatta rolls—all of which are available at concessions. Suites and catering serve up tasty vegan Sloppy Janes and ZLTs—that is, zucchini, lettuce, and tomato (hold the cheese and mayo to make it vegan)—on flatbread.
“Delectable dishes like the BRGR veggie burger and roasted pepper salad make any trip to PNC Park a treat for meat-free fans,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Each park ranked in PETA’s top 10 offers a delicious variety of veg-friendly foods that are helping to set the standard for parks across the country.”
The Los Angeles Dodgers’ Dodger Stadium took top honors, followed by the Philadelphia Phillies’ Citizens Bank Park in second place, the Washington Nationals’ Nationals Stadium in third, the San Diego Padres’ Petco Park in fourth, and the New York Mets’ Citi Field in fifth. Rounding out the top 10 are the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park, the Colorado Rockies’ Coors Field, the Boston Red Sox’s Fenway Park, and the Chicago White Sox’s U.S. Cellular Field.
PETA also ranked the top vegetarian-friendly AA minor league ballparks. Leading the pack is the New Britain Rock Cats’ New Britain Stadium, followed by the Tulsa Drillers’ ONEOK Field, the Biloxi Shuckers’ MGM Park, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos’ Pensacola Bayfront Stadium, and the Erie SeaWolves’ Jerry Uht Park.
PNC Park will receive a framed certificate from PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat.”
