The Evatt family hosted its first tournament in 1984 when oldest brother Joe organized a 20 team softball tournament , aided by younger brothers, Sam & Phil - making us some of the most experienced Tournament Directors in the country. This became an annual event and eventually spawned off into more tournaments throughout the year. In 1988, Phil was co-organizing an inter-collegiate tournament between the University of South Carolina and Clemson University, raising funds for worthy causes.
When Phil graduated from USC in spring of 1990, he wasn't thrilled with any of his job offers. After speaking to his dad and brothers, Sam & Joe, he convinced them that they should open their own business. The family started an awards and engraving business and very quickly added apparel. All along, Sam & Phil will were still volunteering coaching at Northwood Little League and Phil was still putting on Baseball Camps during the summer.
By 1999, Phil was Coaching High School Baseball. In his first full year as Head Coach and having taking over a team that wnt 2-18 the year before, his team had a winning record and a berth to the State Playoffs, despite starting 4 Freshmen (the entire infield) and and 8th Grader as one of the main pitchers. He was offered 2 positions to coach in college, but his business was growing and his son was at the age to where he could coach him; it was en easy choice to make Alan (Phil's son) & is friends his new coaching career.
