Despite Juicy Lucys and the Cuban, PETA rates Target Field vegetarian friendly

Much of the praise for the food at the new Twins Stadium has been targeted to the hearty, meaty, Kent-Hrbek-kinds of offerings — the Juicy Lucy burger, the ham, pork and cheese in Tony Oliva's savory Cuban sandwich, the expensive and bloody Murray's steak on a roll.

But it turns out the vegetarians in the crowd should be crowing, too.

PETA — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals — has declared that Target Field is tied for 10th in its annual ranking of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Ballparks.

Says the group:

"With vegan pitcher Pat Neshek on the road back to Minneapolis, Kirby the Kestrel on the foul pole, and great vegetarian fare on the menu, the new Target Field is quite the animal-friendly place," says PETA Director Dan Shannon. "With so many meat-free meal options available to them, Twins fans can look forward to slashing their risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes for many seasons to come."

Twins PR guy Kevin Smith says that was always the plan:

"The Twins, along with our food and beverage concessionaire Delaware North Sportservice, spent a lot of time researching all the offerings that would eventually end up at Target Field. Guests who prefer great vegetarian fare were certainly part of that effort," he said.

Of course, they count peanuts, popcorn, Cracker Jack and pretzels in the vegetarian portion of the menu.

A list of the Twins alternate fare includes:

Hey, thanks for posting this guide to veggie food at Target Field! I've been there a few times already and even though I scanned the park at least once, I missed a lot of these options. This list is really appreciated.
