You can't win 'em all.

Citizens Bank Park ranks second on People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' annual list of Vegetarian-Friendly Major League Ballparks.

The Phillies' home - marking its eighth season as PETA's No. 1 or No. 2 ballpark - was knocked down off its No. 1 perch on this season by AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants.

PETA grooves on Aramark's faux-chicken patties and veggie chili and reserves special praise for the vegan lineup, including black-bean burgers, veggie dogs, vegan hoagies, hummus with pretzels, and apples with dip.

In a statement, PETA pointed out that Citizens Bank Park has nabbed first place on its list six times in the last eight years. AT&T Park previously grabbed the top spot in 2011.

Rounding out the top five are PNC Park (Pittsburgh Pirates), Citi Field (New York Mets), and Nationals Park (Washington Nationals).
