How many pitchers, if any, faced both Babe Ruth and Roger Maris?

It's almost certain that no pitcher did. I did quick team-by-team scan of National League teams on Baseball-Reference.com for 1935, when Ruth finished his career with the Boston Braves.|
Dutch Leonard, who was with Brooklyn that year, pitched until 1953 and he came closest to hanging on until Maris made his debut with Kansas City in 1957.
I also checked the American League rosters for 1934, Ruth's last year with the Yankees, but couldn't find anyone who lasted longer than Leonard.
