Chang Chih-chiang (simplified Chinese: 张志强; traditional Chinese: 張志強; pinyin: Zhāng Zhìqiáng, born October 22, 1978 in Taiwan) is a Taiwanese baseball player who plays for Uni-President Lions of Chinese Professional Baseball League. He got his first career win on 7 July 2005.[1] He is a starting pitcher for the Lions. Because of his resemblance to Kuo Yuen-chih, a famous Taiwanese baseball player who had a successful baseball career in Japan before retiring, he was assigned the number 33, the same number Kuo wore during almost his entire career. He is nicknamed by fans as Ban-chang (Chinese: 班長, literally "squad leader") due to his experience in the army. Teammate Wang Tzu-sung also served in his squad while in the army.
