Sacramento, Calif. – 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 River Cats fans: For the second year in a row, Raley Field has been recognized by PETA, receiving an honorable mention in this year’s lineup.
“Raley Field has once again stepped up to the plate and grabbed PETA’s attention with its wide variety of delicious vegetarian foods,” says PETA Director Ryan Huling. “The park’s top-quality meat-free concessions make it easy for vegetarian and health-conscious fans to enjoy a great meal while they cheer on the River Cats.”
The powerful lineup of meat-free fare includes the veggie Italian sausage with peppers and onions, the black-bean burger, the curry tofu salad, California mixed greens, and the Broderick veggie burger.
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 (vegans, hold the cheese). Rounding out the winners are Coca-Cola Field (Buffalo Bisons) in New York, McCoy Stadium (Pawtucket Red Sox) in Rhode Island, Cheney Stadium (Tacoma Rainiers) in Washington, and Herschel Greer Stadium (Nashville Sounds) in Tennessee. AutoZone Park (Memphis Redbirds) in Tennessee also earned an honorable mention.
Top honors in the majors also went to a California ballpark, the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park, thanks in part to its delicious Field Roast frankfurter and portobello mushroom sandwich.
The River Cats will receive a framed certificate from PETA. To view the complete rankings, please see PETA’s minor league and major league blog posts.
