San Francisco — Fans love when the “meat” of the lineup is due up at the plate, but more and more of them are choosing to go meat-free when it comes to their own plates, and AT&T Park is accommodating those fans first class. That’s why the home of the San Francisco Giants has shot from honorable mention last year to fourth place in PETA’s 2013 rankings of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Major League Ballparks.

“The reigning World Series champs offer a giant selection of cruelty-free cuisine that would give a good restaurant a run for its money,” says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “Ballparks across the country are showing their fans respect by offering healthy and humane food that will help keep them around to cheer on the home team for many years to come.”

The Giants’ lineup of health- and animal-friendly food starts with a new addition this year, the unequalled vegetarian sausage from Field Roast. Other delicious offerings include the Field Roast frankfurters and burgers, Gardenburger, meat-free tacos, edemame, hummus and pita chips, and veggie “Cha Cha” bowl: rice, black beans, and pineapple salsa. Fans looking for lighter fare can’t miss with the fresh-fruit salad.

For the sixth time in the past seven years, top honors go to Citizens Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies. Standouts include the faux-chicken patties, mock beefsteaks, barbecue vegetarian pit beef, and much more.

Rounding out the top five are Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers), Nationals Park (Washington Nationals), and Angel Stadium (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim). In the minor leagues, the portobello mushroom burger, tofu noodle entrée, and homemade veggie burgers on pretzel buns made the Tulsa Drillers ONEOK Field a big winner.

The Giants will receive a framed certificate from PETA. To see the complete rankings, please visit PETA’s major league and minor league blog posts.

“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
