Teams from Huntington Beach and Billings, Mont., will face off Saturday for the U.S. championship in the Little League World Series, so U.S. Senators Barbara Boxer and Max Baucus have laid a friendly wager on the outcome.

Boxer, D-Calif., put up candy from Huntington Beach’s Surf City Candy. “I am so proud of the Ocean View Little League All-Stars of Huntington Beach for their hard work, team spirit and good sportsmanship. I can’t wait to see them put their skills and dedication to the test in the championship against a very talented Billings All-Star team,” she said.

Baucus, D-Mont., wagered one box of Billings’ famous Caramel Cookie Waffles. “I couldn’t be more proud of the Billings All Star team – not just for their historic season on the field, but also for reminding us all what amazing things we can accomplish with teamwork. There’s nowhere I’d rather place my bet than on good, old-fashioned Montana work ethic, and I can’t wait to cheer our boys on to victory Saturday,” he said.

The winner of Saturday’s game will go on to play the winner of the international championship for the World Series title on Sunday.

UPDATE @ 3:04 P.M. MONDAY 8/29: Time for Baucus to pay up.
