An adequate description of a dugout is, “In baseball, 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 two dugouts, one for the home team and one for the visiting team. In general, the dugout is occupied by all players not prescribed to be on the field at that particular time, as well as coaches and other personnel authorized by the league. The players’ equipment (gloves, batts, batting helmets, catcher’s equipment, etc.) is usually stored in the dugout.”—(Wikipedia Encyclopedia)
A dugout is also a place of emotions. This is where players talk to each other about their anxieties, their personal problems, their achievements, their tips for success and so on. From the dugout the players root for their peers shouting and jumping to their heart’s content. Yep, in baseball, a dugout is a very special place. In a nutshell, it’s the water hole of the team.
