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.

In little league baseball, the home team dugout is the 3rd base dugout.

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.

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.

Yeah all the home dugouts do, not sure about the visitors though.

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.

The first-base side. Or, depending on the league, the home team gets choice... but the home team picks the 3rd-base side almost 99% of the time.

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

Yes. It should be--- Little League Team.

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.

Unlike most teams, the Mariners sit in the first base dugout at home games.

In MLB, games between two American League teams always use the DH and games between two National League teams do not use the DH. When a team from the American League is playing a team from the National League, the rules used are those of the home team's league. If the home team is an American League team, the DH is used. If the home team is a National League team, the DH is not used.

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.

Yes several teams do. The Red Sox dugout is and always has been on the first base side to name one.
