Hirschbeck was first diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2009, undergoing surgery shortly thereafter. Prior to the 2012 season, Hirschbeck was placed on umpiring's Disabled List, presumably due to the illness.
Several months into the 2012 season, Hirschbeck informed friends he had been deemed cancer-free. At the time, Hirschbeck also planned a return to MLB service with a timeline set for some point during the 2013 season.
