His best season was 1912 when he hit .358 and led the National League in on base percentage at .441.
Yes Native Americans were allowed to play before Jim Thorpe. Typically the racial barrier in sports was specifically directed towards African Americans and generally players f…rom Latin, Native American or other ethnic groups were allowed to play. One such example is Jimmy Claxton who was one of the first to brake the professional baseball color barrier when he played two games for the Oakland Oaks. Claxton was allowed to play because it was believed he was Native American from a Oklahoma tribe; However within a week, a friend of Claxton revealed that he had both Negro and Native American ancestors, and Claxton was promptly fired.
