In general, this nationwide study identified and described municipal park/recreation department sponsored adult softball programs implemented within incorporated places ranging from 45,000 - 55,000 in population. Furthermore, this study identified, on a national and regional basis, selected adult softball program elements associated with the cited population. More specifically, this study identified selected adult softball program elements which pertained to: participation numbers, league and teams structures, utilization of infield areas (diamonds), scheduling of games, program budgeting and maintenance of infield areas. Survey data was collected through the use of a questionnaire format. The comparative analysis of processed datum, was based on percentages (frequency of response) as indicated in the crosstabulation of data related to the cited population. Each site, identified as a municipal park and/or recreation department which sponsored adult softball (N = 58), and designated region (N = 9) was examined for uniqueness, or conversely, similarity in responses in relation to the other sites/regions. In addition to structured question responses, any notes, comments, or questions cited by the respondents in reference to the study were utilized.
