Interestingly, there is no official rule about where the home dugout has to be. And the White Sox are not the only team to have theirs on the third base side-- so do the Tigers and the Indians (and a few others too). Some historians think having it on the third base side goes back to Baseball's early years, when many players were also third-base coaches; after standing on the third base line, it was thus much easier to just run back to the dugout and sit for a few minutes. But that explanation may be just another baseball legend.
