Career highlights and awards

Shih Chih-wei (Chinese: 石志偉; pinyin: Shí Zhìwěi; Wade–Giles: Shíh Chìh-wěi; born August 14, 1977 in Alishan, Chiayi County, Taiwan) is a Taiwanese baseball player for the Lamigo Monkeys. He played for the amateur Taiwan Cooperative Bank baseball team before being drafted by the La New Bears (later renamed the Lamigo Monkeys) of the Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) in 2004.

Early life

Shih Chih-wei was born to an aboriginal family of Tsou tribal ancestry.[1] He has been playing baseball since elementary school and graduated from the Taipei Physical Education College.

A member of the Taiwan Cooperative Bank baseball team, Shih was chosen to play in the 2003 World Port Tournament as a member of the national team.[2]

Professional career

Shih was drafted by professional team La New Bears in 2004. In his professional debut, he got his first career base hit against the Brother Elephants. He hit his first career home run in Chengcing Lake Baseball Field; it was an inside-the-park home run.[3]

He became the first player from the team to receive a monthly Most Valuable Player award.[4] Though a rookie, Shih was selected to play in the 2004 CPBL All-Star Game as starting third baseman.[5]

Along with teammate Lin Chih-sheng, the two are often referred to as the "Sheng-Shih Connection",[6] which is derived from glove puppet film Legend of the Sacred Stone (Wade–Giles: Shèng-shíh Ch'uán-shuō). The two players played in the CPBL Future All-Star Game, which is a game with professional rookies playing against amateurs, and had a combined 7-for-8 performance.[7] As a result of his performance in 2004, he received the CPBL Rookie of the Year Award, becoming the first player of the Bears to receive this honor. Shih was also given the CPBL Golden Glove Award at second base.

In 2006, Shih got the Golden Glove Award at third base. He was the first player of the Bears to receive the award twice.
