Relief Pitcher Turned Actor Brad Lesley Dies At 54
Brad “The Animal” Lesley, who parlayed his short stint as a hard-throwing Major League Baseball relief pitcher into an acting career, died last weekend from kidney failure. He was 54.
Lesley’s ex-wife Chiho Svimonoff told TMZ that he had been living in a nursing home for the past seven months, where he was receiving dialysis. He was rushed to a hospital Saturday night in Marina del Rey.
