Pastornicky shares past with Moyer's son
DENVER -- When Tyler Pastornicky innocently told a couple of reporters that he went to high school with one of Jamie Moyer's kids, Braves veteran shortstop Jack Wilson knew what was coming.

"Don't say that," Wilson said. "They're going to write that."

When prodded, Pastornicky said that he believes he actually ended his days at The Pendleton School at the IMG Baseball Academy in Bradenton, Fla., before Dylan Moyer began his. But through trips back to the school, Pastornicky has had a chance to meet the elder Moyer and his kids.

The 22-year-old Pastornicky will be reintroduced on Saturday night, when the 49-year-old Moyer takes the mound for the Rockies.

When asked if he called the veteran pitcher "Mr. Moyer," Pastornicky smiled and said, "No, I think I called him Jamie."
