I'd have walked away from baseball and I'd have bought a farm.
Roy Hobbs: Nothing like a farm. Nothing like being around animals, fixing things. There's nothing like being in the field with the corn and the winter wheat. The greenest stuff you ever saw.

When Hobbs calls time out to go to the mound and talk with the pitcher about not throwing the final game, Pop Fisher comes out of the dugout to break up the meeting. As he leaves the dugout steps he hits his left arm, the sign for a southpaw reliever to come into the game. But there is no pitching change.
