Let x:(Mn,F) (Vn+1, F̄) be a simply connected hypersurface in a Minkowski space (Vn+1, F̄). In this paper, using the Gauss formula of Chern connection on Finsler submanifolds, we shall prove that if x(p) is normal to Tp(M) (∀ p M), then M with the induced metric is isometric to the standard Euclidean sphere.
