Sport: Baseball (1948-50)
A two-time all-Southwest Conference pitcher and a major contributor to one of the greatest eras in Longhorn baseball history, Gorin, a lefthander, was a starting pitcher on the 1949 and 1950 teams which won the first back-to-back College World Series championships in NCAA history. Earning all-SWC honors in 1948, Gorin posted a 7-1 record, and was 4-0 in league play on a team that went 20-2. In 1949, he was 6-3 overall and 3-1 in SWC competition on a team which went 23-7 and owned the College World Series. The following season, Gorin was unbeaten, posting six wins on the year and four in SWC play. In all, he won three games at the College World Series, including two clutch victories as the 'Horns came out of the losers' bracket to win the 1950 title. Following his Texas career, Gorin played professional baseball, finishing with two seasons in Milwaukee in the National League. He returned to Austin and became a teacher and high school coach, serving at Anderson and Lanier High Schools for many years, before moving into school administration.
