PETA has ranked Globe Life Park as the most vegan-friendly ballpark on its annual list, giving high marks to the range of vegan-friendly options provided by the Texas Rangers.
The updated listing for 2019 marks PETA’s 18th annual ranking of Vegan-Friendly Ballparks, and clearly the stakes continue to be raised with each season. Moving up one slot to the top spot this year is Globe Life Park, where the Rangers have a solid slate of vegan-friendly options that includes vegan twists on Texas classics like frito pie, Beyond Sausages with grilled onions, street tacos with Beyond Beef crumbles, and more.
Nabbing the second-place spot is the New York Mets’ Citi Field, which welcomed its first-ever all-vegan food stand, Marty’s V Burger—and in addition to a variety of delicious veggie burgers, fans can find Beyond Meat bratwursts, edamame dumplings, Dole Whip sundaes, and more. Rounding out the top three is last year’s winner, the Minnesota Twins’ Target Field, which offers delicious Sriracha “brats” and Italian “sausages” from The Herbivorous Butcher as well as vegan cheese pizzas.
“The plain veggie dogs of yesteryear don’t cut the mustard with today’s baseball fans, who want melty vegan cheese on their pizzas and spicy tempeh in their tacos,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “From their hearty vegan cheeseburgers to their refreshing nondairy ice cream, the ballparks on PETA’s list are covering all the bases when it comes to meeting the demand for animal-friendly fare.”
Other ballparks landing inside the top five include Oracle Park (San Francisco Giants) and Progressive Field (Cleveland Indians), who place fourth and fifth respectively. Occupying spots 6-10 in order are Yankee Stadium, Dodger Stadium, T-Mobile Park (Seattle Mariners), Kauffman Stadium (Kansas City Royals), and Chase Field (Arizona Diamondbacks).
