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 retired Taiwanese baseball player. 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.
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.
Along with teammate Lin Chih-sheng, the two are often referred to as the "Sheng-Shih Connection", 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. 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.
