PETA Names AutoZone Park In Top 10 List for Vegetarians

Posted By on Mon, Aug 27, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Each year, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) ranks major league ball parks according to how much vegetarian fare is offered at the concession stands.

This year, they also surveyed over 130 minor league parks. AutoZone Park came in at number five for most veg-friendly stadium thanks to an abundance of meat-free options.

Redbirds fans can choose between veggie dogs, grilled vegetable panini, roasted corn on the cob, fresh salads, and of course Cracker Jacks and peanuts. And oh and don’t forget those big ass beers -- those are vegetarian too.

"When it comes to meeting fans' demand for healthy, delicious, meat-free food, the Redbirds always have a winning record," says PETA Assistant Director Dan Shannon. "AutoZone Park's great vegetarian selection benefits both animals and the health of fans, who will be less likely to keel over from a meat-induced heart attack as they cheer the next Redbirds home run."

For a list of all veg-friendly parks, go to the PETA website.
