In “Dorf on the Diamond,” baseball superfan Dorf, whose name is a variation on “dwarf,” attends the East-West All-Star Game and fantasizes about becoming a legendary coach. Voiced by Tim Conway, known for being the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants, Dorf’s imagined coaching scenarios are more comically flawed than they are inspiring.

In reality, Dorf faces a series of humorous obstacles, including a troublesome kid, a wise-cracking peanut vendor, and an uncooperative car. These everyday challenges add to the laughs in this film, another entertaining installment in Conway’s Dorf-themed sports comedy series.
