June 22, 1949 - June 25, 1949 • Wichita, Kansas
Texas coach Bibb Falk won his first of two back-to-back titles.
The CWS field, moved to Wichita, Kan., in part due to financial difficulties, was expanded from two to four teams, a result of a more regional approach to the qualifying process.
In the final game, Longhorn Tom Hamilton had four RBIs and one home run, and teammate Jim Shamblin went 5 for 6 with a triple, a double, three RBIs and one run as Texas beat Wake Forest 10-3.
Note: All-Tournament team selections were not handed out prior to the 1958 College World Series.
