There are 12 home dugouts on the 3rd base line.
There is no official rule regarding home team dugout location. The home team dugout can be found on either side throughout MLB. I can tell you that for as long as I can remember, the Indians always were on the 1st base side at home. Later for some reason, they switched to the 3rd base side. Peter Gammons once explained that teams east of the Mississippi had their dugout on the east side (first base side) of the stadium. While teams west of the Mississippi would have their dugout on the west (third base side) Today some teams with new ballparks have changed this early tradition. Peter Gammons was not correct. The Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox -- both teams in the Major League since it's inception both have their home dugouts on the third base side. The Colorado Rockies and the San Diego Padres have always had their dugouts on the first base side.
Yes, all dugouts for the home team are on the first base line.
Some teams prefer to have their home dugouts on the third-base side. Others prefer the first-base side. The San Francisco Giants are one of 12 major-league teams who prefer the former location. The others: Arizona, both Chicago teams, Cleveland, Detroit, both Los Angeles area teams, Miami, Oakland, Pittsburgh and Toronto.
The teams the have the highest seeds get home field advantage. During the playoffs the teams with the highest seeding after the season gets home field advantage throughout the postseason. In the Super Bowl, home field advantage alternates each year between the NFC and the AFC.
All Major League Home team dugouts are on the first base side except the Chicago Cubs
I played baseball for 16 years and on my high school team my coach liked to do the same thing. He said it was so the sun wasnt alway in our face and he would always be the third base coach so he didnt want to walk all the way around the field every inning. Makes sense. Im sure every coach has their reason.
Because most major league teams, minor league, college and high school teams are on the first base side if they are the home team!! Some teams are on the third base side due to maybe superstition.. that being the Cubs are on the first base line due to tradition.
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.

Jonathan Light wrote in the "Cultural Encyclopedia of Baseball" (1997) that the location of the home team dugout is sometimes based on the whim of the owner. Some times it depends on the vantage point of the owners executive suite. In the American League, seven of the fourteen teams have the home team dugout on the first base side. In the official rules of baseball section 1.08 states: The home club shall furnish players' benches, one each for the home team and visiting teams. Such benches shall not be less than 25 feet from the base lines. They shall be roofed and shall be enclosed at the back and ends.
