This is a Chinese name; the family name is Lin.

Lin Chih-sheng, (traditional Chinese: 林智勝; simplified Chinese: 林智胜; pinyin: Lín Zhìshèng; Wade–Giles: Lin2 Chih4 Sheng4; born January 1, 1982; birth name: 林智盛), also known as Ngayaw Ake in Amis language, is a Taiwanese aboriginal baseball player for the Lamigo Monkeys.

Along with teammate Shih Chih-wei, the two are often referred to as the "Sheng-Shih Connection," a reference to the glove puppet film Legend of the Sacred Stone.[1]

Lin competed at the 2006 Asian Games and had the game-winning hit at the championship game against Japan. In 2008, Lin was chosen to play on the Taiwanese national baseball team at the 2008 Olympic Games.

Lin was tested by the Cleveland Indians for a try out during late December 2010
