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.
