How many black or Latin pitchers did Babe Ruth face in his career?
Answer: A whole bunch, but not in lrague play. Ruth used to go "barnstorming" in the off season through Central America and faced all kinds of pitchers.
What makes Ruths batting so impressive is that the ball was not as lively then as it is now.
Questions like this are pretty silly, when you look at all of the vast differences in a sport from one generation to the next.
Here's my question . . . Leaving Latin pitchers out of the mix (since there was no "language barrier" in Major League Baseball that prevented them from playing back in Ruth's day) -- How many black pitchers has Bonds faced in his career, and how much better were they than the white pitchers he faced?
I think the point you are trying to make is that Ruth faced a diluted talent pool. Fair enough. However, the same could be said of Bonds today. Not because of the exclusion of certain races from the game, but because of the fierce competition Major League Baseball faces for athletes with the NBA and NFL. That competition didn't exist in Ruth's day. Baseball was pretty much the top dog in that era, and attracted the best athletes.
