UNDATED (WSAU)   Former Milwaukee Brewers player-turned actor Brad Lesley is dead at the age of 54. Nicknamed "The Animal" for his aggressive self-motivating rituals, Lesley played for Brewers in the early 1980s before turning to acting. His ex-wife said Lesley had been in a nursing home for kidney problems for several months.

He broke into the majors with the Cincinnati Reds, and spent two seasons with the Brewers in 1984 and 1985.

He appeared in a number of sports movies, including "Mr. Baseball," "Little Big League" and "Space Jam."
