GREAT AMERICAN BALL PARK WINS HONORABLE MENTION FOR VEGETARIAN-FRIENDLY CONCESSIONS
Veggie Sushi and Veggie Dogs Establish Reds Among the Elite
Cincinnati — Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds, has earned an honorable mention in PETA’s 10th annual ranking of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Ballparks. The ballpark’s lineup of delicious options this year includes protein-packed veggie dogs, vegetable sushi, pasta, grilled vegetable wraps, vegetable crudités, PB&J, whole fruit, and garden salads.
“At Great American Ball Park and around the league, delicious meat-free options are becoming a big hit with fans,” says PETA Associate Director Chris Holbein. “With so many great animal- and health-friendly vegetarian dishes to choose from, eating smart while cheering on the Reds has never been easier.”
Grabbing first-place honors is the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park, which offers fans veggie dogs, veggie burgers, portobello mushroom sandwiches, veggie sushi, Asian noodles with vegetables, and meatless burritos. After four straight years of taking top honors, Philadelphia Phillies’ Citizens Bank Park has slipped to an admirable second-place finish this year. Rounding out the top 10 are Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers), Turner Field (Atlanta Braves), Coors Field (Colorado Rockies), Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum (Oakland Athletics), PETCO Park (San Diego Padres), Angel Stadium (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim), Minute Maid Park (Houston Astros), and Miller Park (Milwaukee Brewers).
Top athletes, including slugger Prince Fielder, MMA fighter Jake Shields, NBA legend John Salley, NFL running back Ricky Williams, and Olympic great Carl Lewis, look to meatless meals to boost their health and help stop cruelty to animals. And a trip to ballpark concession stands confirms that many fans are getting the message too.
The Cincinnati Reds—along with each team on the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Ballparks list—will receive a framed certificate from PETA.
