Biography

Brian Scott Gorman (born June 11, 1959) is an umpire in Major League Baseball. After working in the National League from 1991 to 1999, he has umpired in both leagues since 2000. He is the son of Tom Gorman, who served as an NL umpire from 1951 to 1977. He has worn uniform number 9 throughout his career.

Born in Whitestone, Queens, he moved with his family as a child to Closter, New Jersey.

After graduating from the University of Delaware, he began umpiring in the minor leagues in 1982, eventually reaching the American Association before being promoted to the NL. He umpired in three World Series (2004, 2009, 2012) and in two All-Star Games (1998 and 2009). He has also umpired in the 2014 National League Wild Card Game, seven American League Championship Series (2002, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2014, 2016, 2018), and in 10 Division Series (1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2009, 2011, 2012).

During Game 3 of the 2012 ALDS, Gorman was the home plate umpire when Raúl Ibañez hit a game-tying and game-winning home run for the New York Yankees against the Baltimore Orioles. The Yankees would win the ALDS in 5 games.

On May 23, 2002, Gorman was the plate umpire for Shawn Green's four-homer game.

Gorman was the plate umpire for a World Baseball Classic game on March 9, 2013, between Canada and Mexico. After a benches–clearing brawl in the 9th inning, Gorman would issue a total of eight ejections, a national-team baseball record.
