Minor league baseball on display in BK

Some minor league baseball players in Brooklyn are being featured in a new art display.

Photographer Simon Wilms says he's showcasing the young athletes in hopes that they will get discovered and have a shot to play in the major leagues.

The Canadian artist was also named the grand prize winner of "The Fence," a summer photo contest held at Brooklyn Bridge Park. His pictures are now on display in a gallery at 111 Front St. until the end of the month.
