    Perhaps a stupid question but why is our home dugout the 3rd base one?

    Isn?t the first baseline dugout typically the home team dugout?

    No. Third base is always home.

    Not always. Turner Field had the home dugout on the First Base side.

    May not have anything to do with it but late afternoon sun/heat later in the year is not as bad on 3rd base side

    Louisiana does 1st Bass home dugouts a lot for some reason

    Yankees and Cardinals also use the first base dugout.

    Just home team preference

    Traditionally the 3rd base dugout is the home dugout but there are quite a few instances where the home team has the first base dugout.

    I've always thought the home team should have the first base dugout so their players don't have to run all the way across the field after an out.

    Yep. visiting players would always take The Babe out on the town prior to the games in order to see if they could get him so drunk he'd have a hangover the next day hoping it would effect his play the next day.

    When he'd be rounding 3rd after a homer, he'd tip his hat to the dugout shouting "Where we going tonight boys?!!!"

    LOL, gotta love The Babe.

    Depends on the manager. Some managers like to control the plate better at third. the Braves and Yankees have 1st base dugouts.

    Most teams do home dugouts 1st base line because typically 3 out of 4 at bats usually has you player back In The dugout. 1st base is less running back to dugout. It?s a rule of thumb as old as baseball.

    Right, that's why half the big league teams have 3rd base as their home dugout. But I'm glad you chimed in, wouldn't be a baseball post wo your "knowledge"!

    Ok dipshit. Go look it up for yourself. It?s basically common sense as to why a home team would want1sr base dugout but you take ignorance to a new level. . You know as much about baseball as other do flying the international space station.

    And why when Cann implements my ?hitting wishes? with regards to teaching mechanics, that it?s fine since he?s a ?coach?.

    And dipshit, is isn’t difficult to fix your google or download Firefox.

    More incentive to get a base hit so you don't have to run all the way back across the field with an out.

    Duh....
