There are 12 home dugouts on the 3rd base line.
there is no set assignment
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.
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 general short stops play in-between 2nd and 3rd base, but are not required play in that area. Many teams use "the shift" for lefties that are pull hitters (typically pull the ball to right field) and play their short stop just to the first base side of second base for these batters.
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.
