Brian Scott Gorman (born June 11, 1959 in Whitestone, Queens, New York City) 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 1976. He has worn uniform number 9 throughout his career.

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 officiated in the World Series in (2004, and 2009) and in the 1998 and 2009 All-Star Games. He has also umpired in the 2002 American League Championship Series and 2008 American League Championship Series, and in eight Division Series (1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, and 2009).

Gorman appeared as a "stranger" on the TV game show Identity. When the contestant identified him correctly as a Major League Umpire, he replied by saying "You're safe" and making the baseball safe signal (moving the arms across each other below the waist).
