The only rules concerning the dugout are that 1. There must be a 'bench' for each team. 2. It must have three walls and a roof. 3. Must be below the playing surface. It used to be traditional for teams East of the Mississippi to use the first-base side for the home dugout, and teams West of the Mississippi to use the third-base side. However, this is no longer universally followed.

The home dugout is the first base dugout.

There is no rule that states the home dugout needs to be on a particular side. This is completely up to the owners/management of the team

Dugout sizes are not regulated. A good dugout will be large enough to comfortable hold all players and equipment necessary for the game. Most states do however require that a visitors dugout should be equal in size to the home dugout in various leagues, including high school.

In baseball the home team is in the first base dugout and the visiting team is in the third base dugout. So when the Devil Rays are playing at home they are in the first base dugout. When they are playing a road game, they are in the third base dugout.

One can find more information on the dugout on Wikipedia, they have a whole topic about the dogout. The dugout is a team's bench area and is located in foul territory between home plate and either first or third base. There are always two dugouts in baseball, one for the home team and one for the visiting team.

There is no set rule on which dugout is occupied by the home team in the Major Leagues. It varies in different stadiums.

It doesn't matter which dugout the visiting team uses. A general rule is that the home team picks which dugout they want to use and the visiting team is forced to use the opposite dugout. The location of the home/visiting dugouts are not ordered by age, league, etc. But rather, preference.

There is no official dugout for home teams and/or visiting teams in professional baseball. Each ball park is different with the home team dugout pre-determined. The dugouts are usually connected to the team's locker rooms, which are also pre-determined. In other words, the home team dugout may be on the first base side in some stadiums, or on the third base side in others. In amateur ball, such as Little League, etc., the league rules usually designates which dugout is to be occupied by the designated home team and which will be occupied by the designated visiting team.

It varies. There is no "official" dugout for visitors or home teams in baseball. It is decided by the team who calls the stadium home. In NCAA baseball playoffs, the visitors occupy the 3rd base dugout no matter where the game is played.
