Yes, all dugouts for the home team are on the first base line.
There are 12 home dugouts on the 3rd 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.
All Major League Home team dugouts are on the first base side except the Chicago Cubs
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.
You cannot steal first base in baseball.

Yes several teams do. The Red Sox dugout is and always has been on the first base side to name one.
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.
catches the baseball that's thrown to first base
In baseball, when the batter hits the ball, he has to run to first base. First base is when he is safe, where he can not be tagged out by the ball. You can also steal base :) i play 12u softball I am a gall
