Paul Chester Hoover (born April 14, 1976 in Columbus, Ohio) is a Major League Baseball catcher for the Philadelphia Phillies organization.

Hoover was drafted by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the 23rd round of the 1997 Major League Baseball Draft.

On September 29, 2007, Hoover broke up a potential no-hitter in the eighth inning with an infield single to spoil a bid by John Maine of the New York Mets. The Mets are one of the few teams in baseball not to have a no-hitter in their history.

On January 7, 2009, Hoover signed a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training with the Philadelphia Phillies.[1]

On October 4, 2009, Hoover hit a walk-off RBI single on the final day of the regular season against the Florida Marlins to give the Phillies a 7-6 victory. The win would give the Phillies a 93-69 record for the 2009 season.
