At 54 years old, Brad Lesley had already enjoyed a few years of MLB play and being a part of a bunch of 90s sports movies — but that doesn't make his passing any less sad. 54 is waaaay too young!
His death has stemmed from kidney issues, and according to his ex-wife, he had been living in a nursing home for the past seven months. He had been getting dialysis, but succumbed to kidney failure in the end.
Such a bummer. Who could forget his goatee in Little Big League??
Our hearts go out to his friends and family.

Each year, 17,000 people receive a kidney transplant, but it's the number of people that don't receive one that is so astounding.
THAT number is about 17,000 people times FIVE, which is why news that scientists have made functioning rat kidneys at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston is SO amazing!!!!
When the kidneys were transplanted into rats - they effectively produced urine for the rodents!
Normally rat urine isn't very exciting, but this could be a first step towards creating replacement organs for folks who suffer from kidney diseases.

People also knew that he had been battling cancer, but nobody expected his death to be so sudden. We didn't even know what kind of cancer he had! So what happened?
