In other news not related to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, the Los Angeles Dodgers have come out victorious in another field.
PETA recently announced their annual list of vegetarian-friendly ballparks, with the criteria behind the list are both the vegan and vegetarian options at every stadium. Of the 10 teams that made the list, nine were from the National League, with the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park coming in at ninth on the list. The Dodgers’ rival San Francisco Giants also made the list, checking in at sixth.
The Dodgers have over 15 different concession stands at Chavez Ravine and have made an effort to be able to feed all types of appetites. A vegan choice that is a crowd favorite is the vegan nachos, with vegan nacho cheese and a tomatillo avocado sauce. Another option that draws a big attraction are the Levi signature vegan mini burgers.
Along with all the obvious food choices such as the Dodger Dog, it is nice to see that the organization made an effort towards satisfying the food cravings of all Dodger fans. At the beginning of the season, the Dodgers also announced the clubhouse would be going completely organic, thus attempting to turn a healthy page in the contender’s clubhouse.
The team has hired chefs and interns that understand and encourage the idea of the players eating healthier and getting junk food out of their system. The Dodgers also announced Tuesday the addition of a Kosher food stand, located in the right-field plaza adjacent to Tommy Lasorda’s Trattoria.
