New Hawks coach Pierce to throw out first pitch for Braves

New Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce is scheduled to throw out the first pitch before the Braves game against the Cubs on Tuesday night at SunTrust Park. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:35 p.m.

Pierce was introduced as the Hawks coach Monday.

After throwing out the first pitch, Pierce will have to find a place to watch the NBA Draft lottery. The Hawks will found out the order for the June 21 draft during the lottery, held in Chicago, which begins at 7:30 p.m. The Hawks have the fourth-best odds at receiving the No. 1 overall pick.
