MC9 Baseball Club Receives 2023 Best of Canton Award

Canton Award Program Honors the Achievement

CANTON March 23, 2023 -- MC9 Baseball Club has been selected for the 2023 Best of Canton Award in the Baseball Club category by the Canton Award Program.

Each year, the Canton Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Canton area a great place to live, work and play.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2023 Canton Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Canton Award Program and data provided by third parties.

About Canton Award Program

Recognition is given to those companies that have shown the ability to use their best practices and implemented programs to generate competitive advantages and long-term value.

The Canton Award Program was established to recognize the best of local businesses in our community. Our organization works exclusively with local business owners, trade groups, professional associations and other business advertising and marketing groups. Our mission is to recognize the small business community's contributions to the U.S. economy.

MC9 Softball welcomes Coach Kelly O'Hara!

    Meet Coach O'Hara:

"I grew up in Traverse City, MI and started playing softball when I was 7 years old. At 13 years old I started playing travel softball for TC Thunder. I played high school ball at Traverse City West, graduating in 2015 as a 4-year letter winner. Throughout high school, I continued to play on several travel teams and coached many softball clinics as well as a recreational 10U-12U team. I moved to Dearborn, MI for college and played softball at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, graduating in 2019. Most recently, I was an assistant coach for the PCLL 10U-12U team during the summer of 2022."

Welcome to our Softball Family! 🥎💙
