Clover, Lake Wylie intermediate merger a success
Britt Bufford, head coach of the Clover Red Sox, applauded the Clover Parks and Recreation Department’s intermediate baseball merger with the Lake Wylie Athletic Association.
The Lake Wylie and Clover organizations each had one intermediate baseball team this year, and they came together to offer play for ages 11 to 13. The merger allows players one more year to participate before Majors play, which did not accept 13-year-olds.

Bufford thanked Josh McCarter with the Clover department and Ken Wilson of the Lake Wylie Athletic Association
“I think this merger between Lake Wylie and Clover is gonna be fantastic,” he said. “These organizations will only get bigger and better. It’s the first year they’ve done that. It’s all for the kids.”
McCarter said he sees the merger as a positive for both communities. “We’ve got it moving in the right direction,” he said.
And so does Wilson. “In the past, a line had been drawn between the two communities,” he said. “The merger is pulling everything together.”
