McCloy was also in yesterday's issue of the Los Angeles Times. They interviewed her regarding her quest to have all baseball stadiums sell veggie dogs. Currently she is halfway there. It is interesting to note that Angel Stadium is "still a holdout," and that McCloy has been called "un-American" for her work.

From 7/8/08:

I recently heard that Dodger Stadium sells veggie dogs. While surfing the web to confirm this, I came across a pretty cool site that explained how it all happened.

It turns out that in 2000, actress/activist Johanna McCloy contacted Dodger stadium's concession manager and suggested they carry vegetarian options. She even offered to make arrangements by which the stadium could obtain the foods. Dodger Stadium agreed.

McCloy then proceeded to contact other major league baseball stadiums and in the process created Soy Happy, the website I happened to find.

The website lists vegetarian options for all 30 major league baseball stadiums. Soy Happy continues to encourage and assist various locations in providing vegetarian items, including schools, restaurants, zoos, and spas.
