Thank you so much for posting this! I am really interested in doing this and once baseball season slows down I am going to jump with both feet. Hopefully when I get there you are still around and posting and we can chatAlright fellas sorry it took so long to get back to you.
The two main places to buy leaf are leafonly.com and wholeleaftobacco.com , there are many options which is part of the fun. WLT sells some blending kits, here is a good one ( https://www.wholeleaftobacco.com/product/terroso-profundo/ ) , you can also buy 1/4lb samples from LO. You're gonna need Filler, Binder, and Wrapper.
The supplies you'll need are: Large cutting board, pizza cutter or something similar that can do a roll cut, spray bottle with distilled water, cigar glue, and a copper coupling or elbow for cutting caps. There are a few different things that can be used as cigar glue, I use Xanthan gum but you can also buy glue from either of the leaf companies. You don't really need a mold right away, you can make a good cigar without it.
Check out Bliss Cigar Co.'s videos on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKQPvIbslAFFDYDGi-EivRQ/videos
Here is another good videothough I don't bunch with the method he uses.
Hopefully I didn't forget anything, any more questions don't hesitate to ask.

Baseball season is 162 games long, unless you're talking little league
Yeah its little league. My son is 10 and plays on an 11AAA team. I did coach but now I realized these boys need better than me. I manage the team, basically do everything the coaches hate to do so they can just coach baseball!!
Thanks very much I appreciate it. I completely understand what you mean about missing everything when you coach. During the games I just run gamechanger which is a REALLY NICE change. I don't see my son stopping until he has to, he begs to do more practices and add more games!! We talked about doing a tournament down in OK this year but decided on Colorado instead. Maybe early next year we'll venture down your way.Wow, playing up a year on a AAA team, that's great. I coached and you don't get to enjoy each of the moments, when your son plays. You have to enjoy the team and it's hard. I finally said I'd give up duties and let the other guys do it, I just kept score. Eventually my son stopped playing and I expected it. He was playing more because he knew I wanted him to, instead of him really enjoying it.
Good luck to your son and his team!
