DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony are betting that their respective hometown teams will win the World Series.

The two sides have agreed that the winning city’s orchestra will receive a shipment of iconic culinary delights from the loser.

What they haven’t decided is what specific kind of food or foods it will be.

Both the DSO and the SFS are asking people to offer their suggestions via the orchestras’ Facebook pages and Twitter feeds.

Detroit Symphony music director Leonard Slatkin says that “in the spirit of friendly competition, the DSO is challenging our colleagues in the San Francisco Symphony for bragging rights and spoils in the orchestral World Series.”

The series resumes Saturday night in Detroit with the Giants holding a 2-0 lead over the Tigers.
