PETA's "Top 10 Veg-Friendly Ballparks,"
peta.org | unknown | peta

Posted on 04/06/2002 6:34:11 PM PST by TheRedSoxWinThePennant

Baseball fans who know what goes into a hot dog—spent hens, snouts, spleens, even pigs' lips—know better than to order the foot-long at the food counter—unless they're lucky enough to live near one of PETA's "Top 10 Veg-Friendly Ballparks," each of which features delicious veggie dogs, as well as lots of other meatless menu items. These stadiums have hit a homerun for their fans, and the brisk sales of the meat-free traditional baseball favorite show that it's good business for concessionaires, too.

It's time for ALL ball parks to step up to the plate and offer veggie dogs and other veggie fare. Millions of fans have switched to healthy vegetarian diets and wouldn't dream of touching the fat-laden "mystery ingredients" in a hot dog. They want batting averages to go up—not their cholesterol!

You can help us persuade ball parks to follow the example of restaurants everywhere and offer delicious, nutritious vegetarian hot dogs and other snacks. In the meantime, come explore these 10 stadiums that are "safe" for vegetarians.

1: Tropicana Field Tampa Bay Devil Rays

2: Coors Field Colorado Rockies

3: The SkyDome Toronto Blue Jays

4: Network Associates Coliseum Oakland A's

5: Pro Player Stadium Florida Marlins (TIE)

5: Cinergy Field The Cincinnati Reds (TIE)

5: Comiskey Park Chicago White Sox (TIE)

8: Dodger Stadium Los Angeles Dodgers

9: SAFECO Field Seattle Mariners (TIE)

9: Astros Field Houston Astros (TIE)

I'm glad I'm a Cub fan- safe for meat eaters. I must admit my favorite about PETA is People Eating Tasty Animals. I might just make up some T-shirts to wear at a PETA gathering.

the only reason why they'd choose the meatless ones is because they have less grease and we all know baseball fans get horrible heartburn. Just ask Rolaids.

No kidding.

How many hardcore baseball fans are going to give a crap about veggie stuff at the concession stand?

I should send an e-mail to them and tell them the veggie hotdogs are cooked on the same grill as the regular ones.

You can always be assured that when I go to the game I'm enjoying only the best liquified organic hops, barley and/or rice and copious amounts of finely chopped organic tobacco.

...delicious, nutritious vegetarian hot dogs and other snacks

Yeah...right. I had some "delicious" veggie chips the other night and had to actually watch them go into my mouth to know I was eating something...most flavorless bland crap ever. By the way, what is a spent hen??? One that's been strutting her stuff for too long in the red light district???

What's more ridiculous than an anti hunter who eats meat?

Or

What's more inconsistent than a pro choicer who's anti hunting?

Well, I'll tell you one thing; in my opinion there is no greater per capita collection of veggies, fruits, and nuts than Massachusetts. Besides, I'm a Packer fan. What kind of place would Lambeau be with "veggie-brats"? Beam me up.

I bet your right. And I noticed something, at least seven teams on this list are suffering from poor attendance. Coincidence? I think not.

Now dang it; this is downright embarrassing. I'd rather have the Enron name back on the field than this horrid distinction. :)

So PETA wants a veg-friendly ballpark? They should make for Comerica Field post-haste. The way the Tigers have been playing thus far, it's a wonder Tiger fans aren't becoming vegetables.

Otherwise, who the hell asked them?

Buy us some Tofu and Cracker Jack
and don't count the years till we
never come back!

Makes you wish Ichiro Suzuki would open up a sushi bar in the Mariners dugout in PETA's honour...

I'm going to Edison Field in Anaheim next Saturday to see the Angels play. I'm going to have a giant Italian Sausage smothered with peppers and onions, and wash it down with Foster's.
