When Hunter's playing career ended, he scouted for the Indians and Orioles, managed in the Baltimore farm system and was appointed on November 20, 1963 as the Orioles' third-base coach by former Yankees teammate Hank Bauer who had become the team's manager one day earlier. He performed that role for almost 14 seasons for four AL champions and two World Series winners.

After a brief, but successful stint as the manager of the Texas Rangers, Hunter became head baseball coach and athletic director at Maryland's Towson State University, retiring in 1995. He was a 1996 honoree into the Orioles Hall of Fame, inducted with Jerry Hoffberger and Cal Ripken, Sr. These three men were so well thought of in Baltimore that a crowd of 400 showed up at the luncheon at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel.

This lot includes the Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame Award that was presented to Hunter by the Oriole Advocates. It stands 9" tall and features the Oriole Advocates logo floating within the clear award.
