Dodgers lauded for vegetarian food options

Stadium voted No. 1 on PETA's annual ranking

LOS ANGELES -- While Dodger Stadium might be famous for its Dodger Dogs, it's also gaining attention for some of its vegetarian food options.

In its yearly ranking of the most vegetarian-friendly baseball parks, PETA named Dodger Stadium to the top of its list.

In explaining the choice, PETA highlighted the stadium's vegan nachos -- which come with vegan nacho cheese and tomatillo avocado sauce -- and Levy signature vegan mini burgers.

Even the Dodgers' farm system is vegetarian-friendly: Their Double-A affiliate in Tulsa was named the second-best stadium in the Minors for their vast food selection for vegetarians.

Others in the top 10 included Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia (ranked second) and Nationals Park in Washington D.C. (third).
