 Yankee dugout change - Baseball Fever
If I am not mistaken, I believe they used the third-base-side dugout at the old Stadium until it closed after the 1973 season, and then they began using the first-base-side dugout when playing in Shea Stadium in 1974 and 1975.
Thanks for trying to give me an answer to the question of what year did the Yankees switch dugouts from the third base side to the first base side but unfortunately neither answer was right.
I think that the Yankees have been in the first-base-side dugout at Yankee Stadium since it re-opened in 1976.
