University of Illinois physics graduate student Barbara Stekas formed "The Wild Bohrs" softball team in 2013 to help fill some time in the summer.  The Bohrs may not win, but as Illinois Public Media's Brian Moline learned, they certainly have fun trying.

The Bohrs had to forfeit their final two games of the season last night to the league's first place team, as too many of their team members were out of town.  They finish the 2015 summer season with a record of 0-28, but plan to play again in the Champaign Park District fall league.
