DETROIT - Comerica Park has grabbed second place in PETA's rankings of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Major League Ballparks.

"Miguel Cabrera may have won the Triple Crown for Detroit in 2012, but Comerica Park has its own Triple Crown contenders for 2013: an Italian mock sausage, a vegan riblet sandwich, and a veggie dog," says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. "Ballparks across the country are showing their fans respect by offering healthy and humane food that will help keep them around to cheer on the home team for many years to come."

The Detroit Tigers' lineup of healthful and animal-friendly food continues with the vegetable stir-fry, fresh-fruit cup, and hummus with vegetables.

Tigers fans can also munch on a traditional veggie burger, fresh salads and corn on the cob.

The Tigers will receive a framed certificate from PETA.

Comerica was second to Citizens Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies. This was the sixth year Citizens Bank Park took the top spot.
