I have dug up some box scores and read through John Holway's book and I put together a spreadhseet of Babe Ruth versus black competition. So far I have him at 29 for 66 (.439 BA) with 10 homers.

The only thing I take from this is that both of them were just as good against black teams as they were against major leaguers.
