A hunting accident in 1951 impaired the vision in Hubbard¡¯s right eye, forcing him to retire from active umpiring. He was named the assistant supervisor of American League umpires that year, and was promoted to supervisor in 1954. He remained in that position until 1969, the same year he was elected to Cooperstown.
