In 2007, Hackman played nearly all of the season with the Nashville Sounds, the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. He was released from his contract on August 18, and then signed as a free agent by the Triple-A Oklahoma Redhawks on August 24.

He signed with Uni-President 7-Eleven Lions of Taiwanese CPBL on July 1, 2008 and became a free agent at the end of the season (squad number:44). Then He joined with Olmecas de Tabasco of LMB in the beginning of 2009 until June 10, 2009.
