Minneapolis – The results are in for PETA’s 2018 ranking of the Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Ballparks—and for the first time, Target Field has taken top honors, sliding into the number one spot for its delicious array of vegan eats, including a Daiya cheese pizza, a classic Field Roast burger and dog, an aloo gobi rice bowl, and Sriracha “brat” and Italian “sausage” selections from vegan meat supplier The Herbivorous Butcher.

“Whether you’re craving spicy artisanal ‘meats,’ a cheesy pizza, or zesty Indian food, the Minnesota Twins have trounced the competition with their varied vegan stadium-snack options,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “All the ballparks on PETA’s list are proving that vegan eating is as American as baseball and apple pie.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that going vegan would afford baseball players and their fans the time to enjoy more ballgames, since eating meat and other animal-derived foods has been conclusively linked to a higher risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer. In addition, every vegan spares more than 100 animals a year a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries.

Nabbing the second spot on PETA’s list is Globe Life Park, home of the Texas Rangers, where fans can enjoy a vegan Top N’ Go Frito Pie topped with Beyond Meat crumbles and house-made chili and “cheese” sauce. Third place went to the Cleveland Indians’ Progressive Field, which offers a selection of veggie burgers and franks as well as vegan grilled cheese and ice cream.

“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
