Baseball stadiums are a vegetarian’s worst nightmare. We could be starving and find nothing but a giant batch of garlic fries to skarf down, while all our friends are enjoying a tasty hot dog or a cheeseburger. I nearly passed-out of starvation at a tailgate outside the Chicago White Sox stadium last summer.

PGE Park is applauded for its selection of Gardenburgers, Gardenburger Philly-style sandwiches, Tofurky veggie dogs, Polish kielbasa, and various salads.
