The McHenry County K-Nines are a professional baseball team based in Woodstock, Illinois, part of the greater Chicago metropolitan area. They are currently scheduled to begin play in 2011 as a member of the Frontier League, which is not affiliated with Major League Baseball. Home games will be played in an as-yet unnamed ballpark set to open up for 2011. It will break ground in 2010.

The team held a name-the-team contest to help determine the team's name. On July 21, the K-Nines announced their name, logo, and colors. In addition to the obvious dog imagery that comes with the name, "K-Nines" is also a portmanteau of two well-known baseball terms; "K" is used to denote a strikeout in baseball scorekeeping, and "Nines" refers to both the nine innings in a regulation baseball game and the nine players on a team's lineup.
