Chicago – As baseball fever sweeps the nation, there’s good news for animal-friendly White Sox fans: U.S. Cellular Field has grabbed the number 10 spot on PETA’s list of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Ballparks of 2015. Fans rave about concessions favorites like vegan hot dogs and burgers, potato-filled pierogi, and vegan-by-request nachos topped with black beans. Suites and catering offer a to-die-for summer vegetable and tofu flatbread, a vegan sloppy Jane, and many other delectable treats.

“From its tomato bisque soup to its hot Asian buns with vegetables, U.S. Cellular Field offers a powerful line-up of cruelty-free fare to meet any fan’s tastes,” says Kenneth Montville, PETA’s senior campaign strategist. “Each park ranked in PETA’s top 10 offers a tasty variety of veg-friendly foods that are helping to set the standard for parks across the country.”

Other stadiums at the top of PETA’s list are the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Dodger Stadium in first place, the Philadelphia Phillies’ Citizens Bank Park in second, the Washington Nationals’ Nationals Park 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 Pittsburgh Pirates’ PNC Park, the Colorado Rockies’ Coors Field, and the Boston Red Sox’s Fenway Park.

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.

U.S. Cellular Field will receive a framed certificate from PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat.”

“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
