PETA: Citi Field vegeterian-friendly
By Adam Rubin
NEW YORK -- Apparently willing to overlook Shake Shack burgers and Pat LaFrieda's Chop House, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have no beef with Citi Field.
The Mets' ballpark has been named the fourth-most vegetarian-friendly in Major League Baseball by the group.
PETA ranks San Francisco's AT&T Park No. 1, followed by Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park and Pittsburgh's PNC Park.
It’s no wonder why Citi Field made PETA’s list of vegetarian-friendly stadiums: David Wright and other New York Mets players taste-tested Beyond Meat’s new vegan burgers in the dugout, and fans are chowing down on meat-free meals, including Blue Smoke barbecue pit beans, freshly sliced mango sprinkled with chili powder, and V is for Vegan pizza, in the stands.
