Han Lin is an infielder from Taiwan. He is a cousin of former Taiwan national team pitcher Cheng-Hsun Hsieh.
Lin played for Taiwan in the 2001 World Youth Championship and 2006 World University Championship. In the 2006 Haarlem Baseball Week, he went 1 for 11 in his first action with a senior Taiwan national team. During the 2007 World Port Tournament, he hit .206/.289/.235 and made four errors in nine games.
Lin was drafted by the Chinatrust Whales in 2007. When the Whales were disbanded following a 2008 gambling scandal, he went to the Uni-President Lions in the 2nd round of the disbursement draft. As he was completing his military service, he had not played yet for the Whales.
Lin was on Taiwan's roster for the 2009 World Baseball Classic. He played in their loss to China, pinch-hitting for Yen-Wen Kuo and drawing a Guoqiang Sun walk in the 7th. In the 9th, he ground out against Kun Chen.
Lin hit .226/.294/.226 in the 2009 World Port Tournament and fielded only .870 at third base.
