People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the US-based animal rights organisation, has released a list of what it views as the 10 most vegan-friendly ballparks in Major League Baseball.
Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins, came out on top in PETA’s list, with the Minneapolis venue highlighted for its vegan Sriracha Brats and Italian sausages, which are provided by local outlet The Herbivorous Butcher.
Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park placed second. Last year’s winner features a special Ballpark Vegan cart and offers a host of vegan portions, such as veggie wraps, vegan chili, burgers and hot dogs.
Progressive Field (Cleveland Indians), PNC Park (Pittsburgh Pirates) and Chase Field (Arizona Diamondbacks) complete the top five, with the latter boasting the Beyond Meat Classic Vegan Burger.
PETA pointed to Rogers Centre’s Vegan’Acho Nacho as a reason for the Toronto Blue Jays’ ballpark placing sixth. The only Canadian venue also offers what PETA describes as a “decadent” coconut cream pie.
There were also places on the list for Citi Field (New York Mets), Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia Phillies), Safeco Field (Seattle Mariners) and Kauffman Stadium (Kansas City Royals).
PETA considered the vegan offerings at all 30 MLB stadiums before compiling the list.
