Citizens Bank Park is ranked #2 by PETA

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.
