Succession boxes[edit]

I don't understand the use of the word "Incumbent" in the left-hand side of the Spring Training succession boxes at the bottom of the article. "Incumbent" means that something or someone currently occupies a position. If it's meant to indicate that J.P. Small Memorial Stadium was the first Spring Training venue for a team, then I think the word "Incumbent" should be replaced by "None". Also, I'd recommend combining pairs of boxes, e.g.

Preceded by
Incumbent
(should be "None"?)
