Ssu-Chi Chou has been one of the better outfielders in Taiwan in 2007-2008.

Chou played in the 1999 World Junior Championship for Taiwan. While in college, he represented Taiwan in the 2001 Asian Championship (helping Taiwan win Gold) and 2002 World University Championship. He began his pro career in 2005 with the Macoto Cobras, going 5 for 19. In 2006, he hit .233/.276/.301. He made major strides in the 2007 CPBL season, batting .308/.372/.475. In 2008, Chou improved to .330/.394/.467 with 7 triples and 20 doubles in 85 games for the team, now called the dMedia T-Rex. He just missed the league's top 5 in average. He was named to the Best Ten for his work in the outfield, becoming the only member of the T-Rex so chosen. When the T-Rex folded in a gambling scandal, he was picked by the Brother Elephants in the third round of the redistribution draft.

Chou was on Taiwan's provisional roster for the 2009 World Baseball Classic.
