On January 24, 1946, the Tigers sold Hoover to the San Francisco Seals in the Pacific Coast League. Hoover compiled a career low .200 batting average in 87 games for the Seals. The 1946 San Francisco Seals won the PCL pennant in 1946, giving Hoover an MLB championship in 1945 and a PCL championship in 1946.
In his final major league season, Hoover was a member of the 1945 Detroit Tigers team that won the American League pennant and defeated the Chicago Cubs in the 1945 World Series. However, after two seasons as the team's everyday shortstop, Hoover in 1945 divided shortstop duties with Skeeter Webb; Hoover started 55 games at shortstop, while Webb started 99. Hoover's last major league appearance came in Game 6 of the 1945 World Series. He had a single in three World Series at bats. He also had an RBI and scored a run in an 8–7 loss to the Cubs.
Before the start of the 1944 season, Hoover was reclassified as 1A by the draft board, raising fears that the Tigers would lose yet another shortstop to the war. Nevertheless, Hoover remained the Tigers starting shortstop in 1944. His batting average dipped to .236, but he was steady defensively, ranking second in the American League in range factor (5.55) and double plays turned (102) by a shortstop. He also ranked third in the league in putouts by a shortstop with 256.
Hoover became the Tigers' starting shortstop in 1943, appearing in 144 games at the position. He hit for .243 average and led the American League in outs with 478 and in sacrifice hits with 28. He was also second in the league with 101 strikeouts.
In 1942, Hoover blossomed as a hitter, compiling a .327 batting average with 34 doubles, 10 triples, 11 home runs, 62 RBIs and 14 stolen bases. He was selected as a Pacific League All-Star and the Stars' most valuable player, and was named by the Helms Athletic Foundation as Southern California's "athlete of the months" for July 1942. His .327 batting average was fourth best in the PCL during the 1942 season.
He appeared in a career-high 164 games for the Stars in 1941, though his batting average dropped to .235. The Pomona newspaper in 1941 summed up Hoover's path to success:
Hoover became Hollywood's starting shortstop in 1940. As his defensive performance improved, Hollywood manager Bill Sweeney boasted: "If the Stars suddenly acquired the best shortstop in the majors today that player couldn't get Hoover out of my lineup." The Stars held a "Joe Hoover Night" at Gilmore Field in July 1940 at which Pomona's mayor paid tribute to Hoover.
In 1938, Hoover did not report to Indianapolis and refused to sign a contract with the club. In April, he was sold to the Hollywood Stars of the Pacific Coast League. He earned a reputation for versatility with the Stars, logging time at shortstop, second base, outfield, and as a pitcher. In 1939, he appeared in 137 games for the Stars while compiling a .298 batting average and .425 slugging percentage.
In 1937, Hoover signed with the Indianapolis Indians of the American Association. He was farmed out to the Rock Island Islanders of the Western League. He returned to Indianapolis late in the 1937 season. During the 1937, Hoover played at catcher, shortstop, left field, and center field. He compiled a .273 average in 30 games for Indianapolis and .242 in 62 games for Rock Island.
